Repeat Prescription
Think before you order and order only what you need.  Please let your GP know if you’ve stopped taking any of your medicines.
Check what medicines you still have at home before re-ordering
  • Discuss your medication with your GP on a regular basis
  • Think carefully before ticking all the boxes on your repeat prescription forms and only tick those you really need
  • If you don’t need the medicine please don’t order it! If you need the medicine in the future you can still request it.
  • If you need to go into hospital, please remember to take all your medicines with you in a clearly marked bag.
  •       Please also remember that your medicines are prescribed only for you; it’s not safe to share them with anyone else.

Remember that unused medicines cannot be recycled.

Even if you never open them, once medicines have left the Dispensary, they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else.

Please bring your unused medicines to the Dispensary for safe disposal. NEVER dispose of your unused or unwanted medicines down the toilet

If your medicines change - return your old medicines to the dispensary for safe disposal to avoid mixing them up with your new medicines

Don't stockpile medication - it is a safety risk for children and others who might take them

Store medicines in an appropriate place out of reach of children

Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS across the UK over £300million every year. 

£300 million could pay for :-

  • 80,906 hip replacements
  • 101,351 knee replacements
  • 19,799 drug treatment courses for breast cancer
  • 11,778 community nurses
  • 300,000 drug treatment course for Alzheimer’s

Based on average costs

There are ways you can help reduce the cost of wasted medicines.

REMEMBER

Only Order What You Need’ and help us make more of your NHS.

Unwanted & Out of Date Medicines :

If you have out of date or unwanted medicines, both prescription or over the counter drugs, don't bin them or flush them.

You can take your unwanted or out of date medicines back to your dispensary for safe disposal, and it's completely FREE.

Each year enormous quantities of unused and expired medications are dumped into bins or flushed down toilets and sinks. The effects on the environment and human health are unclear but evidence is pointing to the presence of chemicals from prescriptions and over-the-counter medications in soil, drinking water and the surrounding environment. Just as proper medication administration is important, so is safe and cautious disposal.
