You may see this orange sticker with a question mark on your medicines.

Why is there an orange sticker on my medicines?

You may find when you collect your medicines from Day Lewis Pharmacy an orange question mark and wonder what on earth that is!

You may even have been asked if you have a few minutes for our pharmacists to go through your medicines. It takes about 15 minutes.

You may think that your prescriber is already doing this so why bother?

However, this is different sort of review. It’s not designed to be a clinical review. If you have used the pharmacy for 3 months or more this government funded NHS scheme is designed to:

  • improve patients' understanding of their medicines
  • highlight problematic side effects and propose solutions where appropriate
  • improve adherence
  • reduce medicines wastage

The service can only be offered to 400 people a year. There are specific groups of people who particularly benefit from this service. They are the national target groups:

  • patients taking high risk medicines;
  • patients with cardiovascular risk
  • patients recently discharged from hospital within 4-8 weeks of discharge
  • patients with respiratory disease.

But YOU can access this service —

This service is available to you either on a once a year review basis, or at other times as an intervention if there are significant changes, or even if you are experiencing specific medicine related problems.

Where there is an issue the patient's GP needs to be made aware of or to consider, they will be sent an MUR Feedback form.
