New Medicine Service (NMS)

We provide a free NHS service called New Medicine Service (NMS) at all our pharmacies. If you have been prescribed a new medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, speak to one of our pharmacists who will provide you with extra support and advice about your new medication.

You will be able to ask questions, talk about any issues or side effects you may have experienced and discuss any other concerns you may have.

To benefit from this service contact your local branch.

*Please note this service is only available for people who have been prescribed a new medicine for the following conditions:
  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • People who have been given a new blood-thinning medicine
