Drug wastage

is costing the NHS millions...

About £300m of medicines are wasted each year in England, half of which is unnecessary, a Department of Health study found last year. If the rest of the UK is taken into account the figure is closer to £400m.

They also suggested unused medicines that are returned to pharmacies could be repackaged and made available again - at the moment any returned drugs have to be disposed of.

Please just request only what you need.

Many minor illnesses, including sore throats, nasal discharges and general aches and pains are caused by a virus and will usually resolve within a few days. A prescription is not always necessary. The Doctor will advise you how to deal with them.
