Medication Review

Preparing for your review

If your repeat medication review is overdue, please be reassured that we will continue to issue your medicine 

Blood Test - Once you have completed & submitted your medication review form we will notify you if a blood test is required. You might have already been advised this is the case, and the test request is on the system for either the hospital or the practice phlebotomists to action

Blood Pressure - Provide if you are aged over 40 and especially if you are on blood pressure medication

We suggest investing in your own blood pressure machine. You can purchase from local pharmacies or online. There is a blood pressure machine in the waiting room at Holmwood Health Centre

Weight - Digital scale available at Holmwood Health Centre 

Alcohol Units - Calculate how many units you drink each week 

Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) - Decide if you would like to be considered for automatic issuing of your medication to your pharmacy or dispensary. Click here for more info. This may not be possible as depends on the type of medication you are on

After submitting your review

We will aim to read your submissions within 2-3 weeks. If we need to discuss further we will contact you

You will be notified to arrange a blood test if needed 

We will update your review date. If appropriate we will set up electronic repeat dispensing. This means items you need on a regular monthly basis will automatically go to your nominated pharmacy, without the need for you to order. We will notify you if this is set up if suitable 

If you have Asthma or COPD we may text you a focused questionnaire
