Unwanted Prescription Items

All Practices are being asked to manage their Prescribing Costs so as to support the financial pressures on the NHS.   

The Practice is aware that patients may often have their prescription dispensed by the pharmacist but choose not to use the medication. This medication is then wasted, however the cost of it is still charged.

If you are provided with a prescription item that you do not intend to use please ask the doctor or the pharmacist to cancel it.

Please help us minimise waste so as to maximise resources for all patients.
