Useful Tip

An up to date list of your family member’s medicines is useful to take to hospital appointments and to other health care providers, such as dentists and when your family member goes on holiday. If your family member is taking other medicines not prescribed by the doctor, such as medicines they have bought from the pharmacy, supermarket or health store, for example vitamins, check that these medicines are also written on the list. Please also write down if your family member has any allergies to medicines. Keep a copy of this list in your family member’s wallet or bag and another copy with you.
