Meet Mo. Mo is just like the rest of us.
The ‘Meet Mo’ video has been produced to encourage patients – who take several types of medicine – to book a review with their local pharmacist.
This is because, over time, people who take many different types of medicines for different reasons can find their treatments sometimes do not work well together.
A medicines review can help prevent trips to the GP or even hospital, and most importantly, help people feel better. A local pharmacist is a good place to have this conversation.
The AHSN Network is proud to present a new video showcasing the unique role and wide-ranging impact of England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs). Told in the words of key stakeholders and partners, it sums up in less than 4 minutes how the AHSN Network is enabling the faster spread and adoption of innovation into the NHS in England.

There are a number of important things to be aware of when starting anticoagulants. Let's hear from our fictional character Jack as he begins taking this medication and talks about his concerns.
