Members of our Medication Safety Committee at Mayo University Hospital together with our Patient Experience Advisors have launched a new initiative at the hospital.

We want to spread the message that we would like patients to keep an up to date list of their medications and bring it with them should they need to attend the hospital.

Everybody has a role to play in medication safety and we hope that we can by this initiative  improve communication around medicines.
