Everyone should be able to ask about their medicines
‘Me and My Medicines’ is a campaign led by patients and supported by clinical staff to help people raise concerns and use their medicines better. This will help everyone benefit from more effective and safer care.
The Medicines Communication Charter
I would like to help you get the best from your medicines, and to achieve that we need to work together.
Though I am your healthcare professional, you are the expert when it comes to things affecting you and your life.
Being honest about your understanding and feelings towards medicines helps me better appreciate your situation.
I will listen to you and respect what you tell me, so we can share responsibility.
We will share honest and clear advice and support decisions.
This will help us to have a more meaningful conversation and agree a way forward.
If you wish, I can write things down for you.
There are loads of ways to get involved with the Me + My Medicines campaign, both as a patient, a healthcare professional and as an organisation.Find out how →
