Me and My Medicines 

 

‘Me and My Medicines’ is an on-going campaign led by patients and supported by clinical staff to help people raise concerns and use their medicines better.  It aims to help everyone benefit from more
effective and safer care.  The key theme for the campaign is 'Its OK to Ask'. 

 
‘It’s OK to Ask’ means patients, families and carers are encouraged to ask questions about their medicines so that they can be helped to get the most benefit from their medicines. 
 
Patients don’t always know that they can ask for advice on medicines, or what to ask for. The Me and My Medicines charter and messages can be used within your pharmacy to make sure that every patient feels that they can ask questions about their medicines.
