We've got your pharmacy claim covered
When a GP prescribes a certain medication, most people visit a pharmacy to collect that medication, armed with their prescription for the selected tablets or medicine that will hopefully help improve their symptoms. For some people, visiting a pharmacy might be a rare occurrence and for others, they may have more long term requirements for medication, making them a frequent visitor. On the face of it, dispensing medication at a pharmacy should be relatively straight forward. However, sometimes, mistakes can be made which can end up being rather serious, leading to a range of potential side effects and problems from taking improper medicines. Perhaps worse still, is that a wrong prescription not only means taking medication not intended for you, but that you wont be receiving and taking the medication which was prescribed to help your symptoms. This can mean your condition getting worse, when it should be getting better. What started off as simple human error can and often does have quite serious implications. If your condition worsens as a result of not getting the correct medication, or from side effects of incorrect medication, then this can cause pain, suffering and may result in time off work, which itself may have financial implications.
