Mrs GW is an 80-year-old lady who lives with her husband. She has a past medical history including;

  • diabetes type 2
  • diabetic peripheral neuropathy
  • peripheral vascular disease
  • cutaneous lupus
  • osteopenia
  • gastric erosions
  • vitamin B12 deficiency (newly diagnosed).
Mrs GW was a smoker for many years at around 30 cigarettes daily. She ceased smoking a year ago, with the assistance of nicotine patches. The staff at Mrs GW's community pharmacy noticed that she had not been visiting the pharmacy as much as she had in the past. When asking her husband why this was, he explained that she was less mobile than before.
