3. Medication Information Service
Pharmacists attend to phone enquiries from staff and patients by providing useful information on concerns related to their medicines, such as their side effects and drug interactions.
 

4 Brown Bag Service
 We provide a Brown Bag Service to review all the medications that a patient is taking.  This service is recommended for patients who have excess medicines and are unsure about their safety and use. Our goal is to identify the medication the patient is taking and determine how they are taking them to prevent medication errors or to correct misunderstanding. Medication counselling and practical advice will be provided, if necessary. Expired medicines will be identified and discarded accordingly. There is a charge for this service. For more information, please approach our pharmacy staff at the counter.  

5. Smoking Cessation Programme
 This customised programme offers support and professional advice to patients who are keen to quit smoking. Our pharmacist will review the smoking profile and medication history of each individual, recommend methods to quit smoking and advise on coping skills as well as relapse prevention methods. 

 6. Medication Management Service (available at the pharmacy in IMH Clinic B, Community Wellness Clinics at Queenstown and Geylang) 
 Dedicated pharmacists provide personalised medication management service to optimise treatment outcomes in collaboration with the doctor and multi-disciplinary team.  

  • Review the suitability, effectiveness and safety of medication treatment 
  • Identify, resolve, prevent and monitor medication use and safety problems, such as medication side effects, interactions between psychiatric and non-psychiatric medications, etc. 
  • Provide education and information to help patients improve understanding of their medications and improve medication adherence
