Sometimes, if you have a stay in hospital, your medicines can change. You may be given new medicines to take. This can be a lot to remember, especially if you were already taking medicine.

Better Local Care in Hampshire wants to simplify how you access health and social care in your community by removing the red tape that often causes delays and frustration so you get the care you need at the right time, in the right place, by the right person.
It will achieve this by bringing together care professionals who already support the same local people, offering new ways for patients and the public to shape their own local services, and making sure care funding goes where it will make the biggest difference to people’s lives.
This video, produced by our CCG colleagues, describes the work of the Better Local Care programme over the past three years (2015-18), the results and what’s next.
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.
