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!!
