    Waste Medicines - Waste Money

    Did you know wasted medicines cost the NHS over £5,000,000 in South Staffordshire last year?

    £5,000,000 is Eqivalent to:

    • 800 more hip replacements or;
    • 560 more heart by-pass operations or;
    • 5,600 more cataract operations or;
    • 120 more community nurses or;
    • 720 more knee replacements.

    How you can help:

    • Check what medicines you have at home before re-ordering.
    • On your repeat prescription only tick those items you really need.
    • If you don't need a medicine now - don't order it this time. It will still appear on your next repeat prescription.
    • If you feel you don't need a medicine anymore, tell your doctor.
    • Remember, dispensed medicines cannot be reused by other patients if you return them.
