Certain specialised drugs require regular blood monitoring. Examples include (but are not limited to) Methotrexate, Azathioprine, Lithium, Sulfasalazine and Ciclosporin
Monitoring enables the GP to safely prescribe for you.
The exact monitoring bloods, and frequency required, has been decided by experts in the area.
Monitoring is provided by our nursing staff and will be set up when medication is started.
