HOME MEDICINES REVIEW (HMR)

A HMR involves your GP and an accredited pharmacist of your choice.

Do I Need An HMR?

You may need an HMR if you:

  • take more than five medicines a day;
  • have recently spent time in hospital;
  • are concerned about their medicines;
  • are confused about their medicines;
  • do not always remember to take their medicines.

Do I Need An HMR?

If you think you require a HMR, please do not hesitate to talk to your pharmacist at Newmarket Day & Night Compounding Pharmacy as we have an accredited consultant pharmacist who has undergone extensive training and has ten years of experience in conducting HMR’s .

What's An HMR?

Your GP sets up the review by writing a referral to the pharmacist. A pharmacist conducts an interview, preferably in the comfort of your own home, and then writes a report back to the GP. The GP will discuss any recommendations with you and may make appropriate changes to your medication regimen.

Solutions Involved:

  • showing you how to take your medicines correctly;
  • explaining why and when to take them;
  • explaining where they should be stored;
  • what to expect when taking them;
  • what problems you should report to the GP;
  • checking that prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines and vitamins are appropriate to take together;
  • clarifying any confusion with generic medicines;
  • giving you some help so you can remember to take your medicines;
  • changing your medicine
