Waste Medicine Campaign – update

In just 3 weeks we have received almost £6,000 worth of unused/unwanted prescribed medicines.

We can’t reuse these medicines; we have to safely destroy them.

The money spent on these could have been used for:

  • 1 hip replacement, or
  • Approximately 30 new outpatient appointments, or
  • Around 8 cataract operations

We are very grateful to those patients who have brought their unused/unwanted medicines in.  It helps us understand how we can reduce waste in the future.  Keep them coming!

Dont need it?  Don’t order it!

Tell us you don’t want/use it!!
