Practice News and Notices
HELP THE NHS TO REDUCE MEDICINE WASTE
Medicine wastage is a serious problem for the NHS. Some patients or their carers continue to request more repeat medicines than needed and this can lead to stockpiling at home. Not only does it waste medication but it puts a huge financial burden on an already burdened NHS.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
·Only order the medications you need - check what medicines you still have at home before re-ordering
·Tell your GP if you have stopped taking any of your medications
·Attend your medication reviews on a regular basis - this helps your GP to keep your medications up to date.
If you would like more information on medicine wastage please go to www.medicinewaste.com
