Medicines Usage Review (MUR)

Pharmacist at counterIf you are taking a variety of medicine, or are unsure about any aspect of your medication, we are here to help you understand it.  Whether it's uncertainty about taking medicines together or something a little more serious, our Pharmacists are happy to discuss your issues with you in private.

A Medicines Use Review is a free NHS service provided by all Peak Pharmacies and Tims and Parker Pharmacies.  The review will take place in a private consultation room and takes around 15 minutes.  Your MUR is completely confidential and your GP will receive a record of the discussion.

The purpose of the review is for the Pharmacist to focus on how you are getting on with your medicines - if you are taking your medicines at the right time and in the right dosage, whether your medicines are affecting one another and how you can benefit most from your medications and increase their effectiveness.

If a Pharmacist asks to carry out an MUR on you, don't be alarmed, it is a routine process that benefits everyone and helps avoid any complications.
