Reviews

Reviewer: Hillingdon Carers, UK
Review: “The ‘My Medication Passport’ is a written record of a patient’s medicines. It is designed to improve communication between patients, carers and healthcare professionals, and maintain a record of changes made to the patient’s medication. My Medication Passport includes: relevant information about the patient; relevant information about the patient’s GP/ other healthcare professionals; list of medicines the patient cannot take, and the reasons why; compliance aids in use; list of the patient’s current medicines; changes made to current medicines, and why; blank pages for the patient to record additional medical information, such as vaccinations, screenings etc.”
