New Medicines Service
Whether you’ve recently been diagnosed with a condition or have been living with it for some time, it’s natural to want to know more information about any new medication prescribed to you by your doctor. While your GP will always offer direction on how and when the medicine should be taken, you may want to know more about the medicine to understand what it is, what it does, and any possible side effects which could occur as a result of taking the medicine.
The New Medicines Service (NMS) offered by iPharm is an advanced NHS service that allows anybody living in England, who has been prescribed with a new medication for one of the eligible long-term illnesses highlighted below, to arrange a call with our medically trained pharmacist to discuss their medication and ask any questions they may have. The aim of the New Medicine Service is to offer you peace of mind in regard to the medication you are taking and help with any unwanted side effects that may come as a result of taking the medication.
