Home Medicines Reviews

A Home Medicine Review is a way for your clinical pharmacist and GP, or Medical Specialist, to “do a check-up” on your medicines.

Home Medicine Reviews are fully funded by Government, provided you have a current Medicare or Department of Veteran’s Affairs card.

A Ward MM clinical pharmacist will help simplify your medicines to ensure they are being used effectively whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects or harm.

A Home Medicine Review is available to anyone living independently and potentially at risk of experiencing medication related harm.

For every initial comprehensive medicine review conducted, a further two follow up reviews can occur, if you need them.
