“For me the LSP is literally of vital importance’’

"I have quite a few chronic conditions. That is why I use quite a lot of medication, and those pills also vary a lot. When I get some new medicines, it is important that they are well-coordinated and matched with my other medication I already use. That is something which needs close monitoring. Now, I have to keep track it all by myself to prevent something bad from happening. If I have an appointment with physicians, I always go to my pharmacy to get a medication overview. For my health it is of the utmost importance that my physicians are aware of my current medication. The (new) medication they prescribe must match the medication I already take."

"But it also happens quite regularly that I unexpectedly need to get emergency aid. And of course, there they have to know exactly what medication I use. That is very difficult for me, because at those moment I do not feel well at all, and sometimes I even black out. Because of my condition and the nervousness, I do not always know exactly what medications I have recently received. That is why I gave my pharmacy my consent to share my medication data through the LSP with other healthcare providers. For me, it's literally of vital importance that a doctor can access my current medical data quickly."
