MEDICINE WASTE CAMPAIGN 2019 AND HOW IT WILL AFFECT YOU

Medicines over-ordering and drug wastage has been identified as a serious and growing problem within the NHS.  It is estimated that as much as three hundred million is wasted every year on unused or partially used medication.  We are asking all our patients to look at the medications they order regularly and ask that they only order the medications that are needed.  In an attempt to reduce the amount of waste prescription medications and inline with other Leicestershire practices and other areas in the UK, we will no longer be accepting third party requests for medication.  This means that all repeat requests must be ordered by the patient themselves as only they know exactly what they require.

The date we have nominated for our new process to start is: Tuesday 1st January 2019
