Medication reviews in primary care are now an established and important part of the care of patients on multiple medications. In the current NHS this review has demonstrated that pharmacist-led medication reviews can reduce inappropriate prescribing and offer an efficient approach to ensuring reviews are completed. These reviews appear best operationalized with experienced pharmacists who are closely aligned with the patients and prescribers through joined up services. Further developments in pharmacists’ communication skills with patient and prescribers may offer greater benefits in the future.
