Prescription wastage

Every year the NHS counts the cost of unused or wasted medicines. A recent audit revealed that, for an average practice, it was estimated that £225,000 was spent on unused (stockpiled) or wasted medicines.

There are a number of steps that can be taken by patients to help reduce the amount of money we are currently wasting on medicines including:

  • Only ordering repeat prescriptions for medicines you need at that time
  • Check which medicines you have before ordering your prescription
  • Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have stopped using a medicine
  • Keep your repeat prescription list up to date
  • Don’t hoard medicines for a rainy day or for the future
  • Return any unwanted medicines to the chemist for safe disposal
