Managing Your Medicines

This free service is offered to you if you regularly take a number of different medicines.

​ The aim is to:
- Help you understand more about your medicines (what they are for and how to take them)
- Assist with any problems or queries which you have.


It will involve a confidential chat with you in the pharmacy consultation room or at your home at a time which suits you.

It is like a Medicine Use Review, but we can spend more time with you, and it covers a wider range of medical conditions.

It can be particularly useful if:
- You have just been released from hospital with changes to your medication
- You have a low level of support
- You are unsure about what medicines you are to take and/or why

Smoking Cessation

​ Many ex-smokers say quitting was the hardest thing they ever did. Yet millions of people have been able to do it—and you can, too.

The free Community Pharmacy Smoking Cessation program is designed to:

​ - Support you in quitting when you are assessed as being motivated to quit
- Provide behavioural support and supply Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT – patches, inhalators, lozenges, gum etc.), where suitable, weekly for up to 12 weeks

NRT doubles your chances of success when you use it right. Using stop smoking services in combination with NRT makes you three to four times more likely to quit
