A few months ago, our rural practice started having a fortnightly visit from a pharmacist from elsewhere.
She appears to be reviewing everyone's medication and has called me several times asking me to change/stop medications. The latest being carbocysteine which my GP suggested might be beneficial.
I am assuming this is a cost-cutting exercise and I was wondering if it is widespread or just local to me in Scotland.
I might add that I find it a bit annoying that someone I have never met is trying to change/stop my medication. It is making me feel that I am a burden on the NHS although I try to take as little medication as possible despite my condition worsening rapidly.
