Reducing medicine waste


Please support us in helping to reduce the amounts of medicine that are wasted, costing millions of pounds to the National Health Service

  • Please check what medicines you have at home before ordering a repeat prescription
  • Tell your GP or Nurse if you have stopped taking any medicines on your repeat prescription
  • Medicines cannot be recycled whether they have been opened or not
  • Please return unwanted medicines to your pharmacy for safe disposal, don't throw them away.
  • If you need to go into hospital, please take your medicines with you
