NONADHERENCE with MEDICINES

Non-adherence to prescribed medicines and non-adherence to advice about how to manage symptoms is very common and prevents patients from getting the best effect of treatments.
If you suspect low adherence and/or think the patient could benefit from a medication review/discussion about their medicines your Prescribing Support Pharmacist will be able to help.
