Independent Pharmacy Reviews

We deliver exceptional Independent Pharmacy Reviews, enhancing patient safety and medication efficacy through expert, tailored advice for insurers, treating doctors, and individuals.

What are Independent Pharmacy Reviews?

Independent Pharmacy Reviews are comprehensive evaluations conducted by our highly experienced clinical pharmacists. These reviews examine each patient’s medication regimen to assess the suitability, effectiveness, safety, and compliance of prescribed pharmaceuticals.

The process involves a thorough analysis of the patient’s current and past prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and any supplements they may be taking. The goal is to identify any potential drug interactions, duplications, or discrepancies that could impact the patient’s health.

Medication Safety and Efficacy in Australia

In 2022, the National President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) stated, “Unsafe medicine practices and errors with medicine are the leading cause of avoidable harm across the world”. The PSA found that due to medication errors, misuse or misadventure, 250,000 Australians are admitted to hospital each year, costing Australia approximately $1.4 billion.

It’s clear that unsafe medication practices and prescription drug errors are major causes of harm in Australia. This problem is further compounded by new prescription medicines that become available to the public each year.

Ensuring the appropriate use of medications is essential for both the safety of patients and the efficacy of their treatments. Medico Legal Specialists takes pride in offering Independent Pharmacy Reviews, a service designed to uphold the highest standards of pharmaceutical care and advice. Through this service, we extend our expertise to Australian insurers, doctors, and individuals, aiming to optimise therapeutic outcomes and support informed decision-making in medication management.
