Home Medicines Reviews

A Home Medicines Review (HMR) is a way for your pharmacist and GP to do a check-up on your medicines. A Ward MM Clinical Pharmacist will help review your medications and ensure medicines are being used effectively whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects or harm.

A HMR is available to anyone living independently and are at risk of experiencing medication misadventure and is free, providing you have a current Medicare or Department of Veteran’s Affairs card.  The Australian Government will fund one Home Medicine Review every two years or on request from your GP following a clinical incident such as a fall or hospital visit.
