How can you help your local NHS tackle the problem of medicines waste?

Check: Look at your supplies – order only the items that you need

Listen: Listen to the advice from your doctor, nurse or pharmacist and take all medicines as instructed on the label.

Tell: Tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if your medicines are not agreeing with you or you have stopped taking them.

Tick: Using the counterfoil of the prescription, tick only the medicines you need, and remember “tick in haste – medicines waste.”

Open: Open your bag of medication while at the pharmacy. If you have item(s) not requested, or surplus to your needs for the next month, please return these before leaving.
