You may be able to get extra help and advice about your medicine from your local pharmacist through a new free scheme called the New Medicine Service (NMS).

You are eligible for this service if you the new medication is for Asthma, COPD, Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure or a blood thinning medication.
