A medicines use review (MUR) can only be done properly if the pharmacist has access to the medical records of the patient. I believe this is only possible if the MUR is conducted in a doctor’s surgery. I spent three months working in a large medical practice where I had access to the patient’s medical records. With this information, I was able to make a proper assessment of the patient’s needs. Also, community pharmacists are under pressure to meet MUR targets, which doesn’t help because this can result in poor quality MURs being conducted.
