What Is Medicine Use Review (MUR)?

Introduced in April 2013, the Medicine Use Review (MUR) is a structured review of patient’s medicines.

Simply put, it means that you have an opportunity to speak with your pharmacist almost anything related to your medicines. The purpose is threefold.

First, it should help you understand your therapy. Secondly, it should help you identify any problems, such as side effects. Finally, it may result in some suggestions to solve these problems.

MUR Questions

Medicine Use ReviewYou may have many different questions to ask us during an MUR. Here are few suggestions:

  • How well do your medicines control your symptoms?
  • What are your medicines for?
  • How do they work?
  • What is the best way and the best time to take them?
  • What is a particular medicine for?
  • How do you improve your inhaler technique?

This free service is initially available only for few types of patients. Mainly, it’s about those who use inhalers to treat respiratory conditions like asthma & COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or for those who take medication for diabetes.

It is hoped that more medical conditions will be covered by the MUR service in the future.
