Changes to your medication

From time to time your medication may change:

  • from a tablet to capsule or vice versa
  • from one brand to another
  • another equivalent medication

Your doctor will only do this if the new medication is as good as or better at treating your condition.

Making such changes helps to ensure that every penny spent on your local NHS is spent wisely.

This practice participates in the Wirral Prescribing Incentive Scheme. This scheme aims to increase the quality and cost effectiveness of prescribing.

If you have any queries about these changes to your medication please speak to a member of staff at the practice or if you prefer your local pharmacist.
