When you attend for your medication review you may be seen by non-medical prescriber or a doctor.


What is a non-medical prescriber?

A non-medical prescriber is a health care worker, such as a nurse or a pharmacist, who is able to prescribe medication just like your doctor. They may be male or female.


What does it mean for me?

Non-medical prescribers can:

  • give you a prescription for your medication
  • give you information and advice about your medication
  • offer you appointments when needed - these might include involving other people in your care.

Your medication can be changed if needed.

We may need to check your height, weight or blood pressure.


What happens now?

You don’t need to do anything.

Please ask a member of staff if you have any questions or are not sure about this.
