Help reduce medicine waste

reduce medicine waste


You can help by doing your bit to prevent NHS money being spent on prescriptions that aren't needed

  • Only order the items you need
  • Tell your GP, Practice or Pharmacy if you no longer need an item
  • If someone orders your prescription for you, let them know what you need
  • Check the bag before you leave the pharmacy and hand back any items you don’t need (once out of the pharmacy, medication cannot be re-used or given to another patient
