Welcome to the Highgrove Surgery Website
DO NOT WASTE MEDICINE!
Wasted Medicine is everyone's responsibility and there are small changes you can make to help reduce the amount of medicine being wasted.
ONLY ORDER THE MEDICATION YOU REQUIRE.
DO NOT OVERORDER, DO NOT STOCKPILE
Savings could be reinvested into more frontline care and services that benefit all.
Unused medication cannot be recycled, it must be thrown away, whether or not the packaging has been opened.
Did you know that unused prescription medication costs the NHS an estimated £300 million a year? This could pay for:
11,778 more community nurses
80,908 more hip replacements
312,175 more cataract operations or
more drug treatment courses for breast cancer or Alzheimers Disease.
So please, DO NOT WASTE MEDICINE!
