The Vesicare Information Programme (VIP) is a service provided by Astellas to help patients get the most out of taking Vesicare and in managing their disease.

Any patient who receives a prescription for Vesicare and commenced treatment within the last six months is eligible to be registered with the VIP. Any member of staff who the Responsible Pharmacist decides is competent can deliver this service. If a patient presents with a prescription for Vesicare staff should explain that the manufacturer of Vesicare provide a free service:

  • to support them in getting the most from their treatment; and
  • to help them with lifestyle changes that will make managing their disease easier.

To access the support the patient will need to consent to information (name, address, etc) being shared to allow for administration of the scheme. Verbal consent can be obtained over the telephone for patients who get their prescription delivered.
