Medication Monitoring & Updates

Dear Patient,

At Cassio Surgery we are continually monitoring and reviewing our patients medication for their safety and effectiveness.

What are we reviewing?

We are reviewing patients prescribed one of the following Medications:

  • Azathioprine
  • Ciclosporin
  • Dapsone
  • D-penicillamine
  • Hydroxychloroquine
  • Leflunomide
  • Methotrexate
  • Mycophenolate
  • Sulfasalazine

Why am I receiving this letter?

You have been sent this letter as you are being prescribed one or more of the above medications. The treatments listed have proven benefits but can also cause harm; therefore it is important that regular blood tests are completed during continued therapy to minimise risks to your health. Blood tests are normally completed between every 3, 6 or 12 months dependent on the medication. The responsibilities for ensuring blood tests are completed falls with yourself as the patient and the prescriber to request them.

At Cassio Surgery we take full prescribing responsibility but if we are unable to effectively monitor individuals we are under no obligation to continue prescribing the high risk medication, and furthermore notify the specialist originally involved in initiating the medication in writing. 

It is very important that you have all the information about the treatment(s) you are taking and the reason for taking them. Should you have any questions regarding your medication please feel free to contact the surgery and speak to one of our healthcare professionals.

The surgery now widely communicates by Text SMS or via a phone call so please ensure that we have your up to date contact details on our records if we need to contact you. Our reception can update these if incorrect or missing.

King Regards,

Cassio Surgery
