The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) in Scotland have launched a new campaign encouraging caring conversations with pharmacists.
Good Care Starts with a Conversation highlights the crucial role pharmacists play in ensuring people get the most out of their medicines, and uses the hashtag #talktopharmacy to encourage people to speak with pharmacy staff if they have any questions.
According to the RPS in Scotland, 20% of adults take more than 5 medicines, and this rises to 59% for those over 70 years old. In addition, up to half of all medicines prescribed are not taken as intended.
