New Medicines Scheme


If you are prescribed a medicine to treat a long-term condition for the first time, you may be able to get extra help and advice about your medicine from your local Clear Pharmacy.

People often have problems when they start a new medicine. As part of this free scheme, your pharmacist will support you over several weeks to use the medicine safely and to best effect.

If you have been given a new medicine for one of the conditions listed below, you may be eligible:

  • Asthma
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • People starting a new blood thinning medicine
