There are a number of ways that you can help to reduce the issue of wasted medicines and save money for your local NHS.

Only order the medicines that you need

  • Please let your GP or Pharmacist know if you’ve stopped taking any of your medicines
  • Check what medicines you still have at home before re-ordering
  • Discuss your medication with your GP or Pharmacist on a regular basis
  • Think carefully before ticking all the boxes on your repeat prescription forms and only tick those you really need
  • If you don’t need the medicine please don’t order it! If you need the medicine in the future you can still request it.
  • If you need to go into hospital, please remember to take all your medicines with you in a clearly marked bag.
  • Please also remember that your medicines are prescribed only for you; it’s not safe to share them with anyone else.

Remember that unused medicines cannot be recycled

  • Even if you never open them, once medicines have left the Pharmacy, they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else.
  • Please bring your unused medicines to the Pharmacy for safe disposal.
  • NEVER dispose of your unused or unwanted medicines down the toilet

Unused medicines are a safety risk

  • Return out of date medicines to your pharmacy or dispensary for safe disposal
  • If your medicines change - return your old medicines to the pharmacy for safe disposal to avoid mixing them up with your new medicines
  • Don't stockpile medication - it is a safety risk for children and others who might take them
  • Store medicines in an appropriate place out of reach of children
