MEDICINES USE REVIEW (MUR)
What is a Medicines Use Review?
A Medicines Use Review is a free NHS service offered by pharmacies in the UK. The review involves an appointment with your local pharmacist, in a private consultation room. It is an opportunity for you to discuss your medicines with a pharmacist, to understand how your medicines should be used and why they have been prescribed, as well as solving any problems you may have with them.
