New Medicine Service (NMS) - Imaan Pharmacy, Harehills

What is the New Medicine Service (NMS)?

 

The New Medicine Service (NMS) is an NHS based service offered in most community pharmacies. It provides additional advice and support to those who have been prescribed a new form of medication to treat an already established long-term condition. It ensures those who are on the medication are adhering to the changes and finding their new medicine manageable.

 

Those prescribed new medication will be invited to a consultation with a pharmacist to ascertain how they are getting on with their new medicine.

 

How will I know if I’m eligible for the New Medicine Service?

 

The NMS is focused on providing support to patients being treated for a number of specific conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)
  • Conditions that help control the way your blood clots

The system is only available to people who use medications for these conditions. If you wish to seek further advice or want to stop the service from being offered to you, then you may be referred to a doctor for further discussion.

 

How long will each appointment take?

 

The consultations are intended to fit around you. A standard consultation will take roughly 10-15 minutes.

 

Your first consultation with us

 

7 to 14 days after receiving your new medicine, your pharmacist will invite you to discuss how you’ve been getting on with your new medicine. The questions will focus on your experience so far, potential side effects, your routine and understanding so far.

 

Your second consultation with us

 

You’ll have a follow-up consultation 14 to 21 days after your first consultation. You will be able to discuss whether you’ve found the medicine easy or difficult to take and if side effects have developed or started. You may be offered a third consultation if you may need it, but 2 consultations are the typical amount required to cover all there is to know about the new medicine.

 

If you would like to know more information about our New Medicine Service or to book a 1 to 1 consultation, please visit Imaan Pharmacy, Harehills today or give us a call on 0113 249 2311.

I would like to thank all staff at Imaan Pharmacy for their excellent service when my husband and I went for our covid boosters today. Warm, efficient welcome; comfortable, seated wait (we were a bit early); considerate and efficient administration of vaccine for us both. Well done - I wish you were nearer to our home!

I came in as a first year pharmacy student, looking for work experience, however, having had a few hours of previous experience, at a different pharmacy, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy my time at Imaan pharmacy, Leeds, but as soon as the first day started, I felt positive energy from all the staff (the type of energy I would not have expected from a pharmacy). I’d highly recommend, pharmacy students, looking for experience to get experience here, as it’s not too busy so you won’t feel pressured when completing tasks. Both pharmacists that work here, are helpful and give great advice on career paths as a pharmacist, prereg and what to expect in the up coming years at university. The dispenser that I shadowed, was great at her job and gave me many opportunities to help around the pharmacy and gain experience in many areas of pharmacy. The counter assistant is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and will always ask you if you want a cup of tea. I’m grateful for the experience they gave but also for how patient they were with me, even when I made mistakes.
