If a patient's medication needs optimisation, they will also have a ' !! ' icon under their name. Just click this to open the appropriate template.
From within a patient’s record you can access the 'MHRA + Drug Alerts’ template from the bottom right of the ‘Drug Review’ template. This template includes a list of medication optimisation considerations for the patient, plus recent MHRA drug alerts.
