Managing your medicines

Medicines management is essential to your care and ensure you are able to live your best life possible. 

We have a dedicated medicines management team who provide reliable, easy to access information on medicines and ensure their safe and effective use within Southern Health. 

Medicines information:
To help you make informed decisions about medicines, the Choice and Medication website includes information about medicines that are used in the treatment of mental health problems. This includes information about side effects and comparison of medicines used for various conditions. The NHS A-Z website provides information about common medicines used within the NHS and may also be useful. Your community pharmacist is also an expert on medicines and can help answer questions you may have about your regular medication. 

Queries about medicines:
If you have any questions about your medicines, please discuss them with the pharmacists who supplied them to you. If you are a patient or service user under our care, you should initially contact your health care professional, care coordinator or key worker who will be able to help you and can put you in contact with a clinical pharmacist if needed.
