Medicines and Tackling Waste

Tackling waste could save the NHS in Scotland up to £44 million.

Be organised, order only what you need by checking your medicine cabinet before you order repeat medicines.

Ensuring that medicines are being taken properly and working best for a patient reduces waste and improves outcomes, delivering better value for the NHS. 

Work in partnership with your Doctor/Nurse to make sure you understand what medicines you take and why, and tell them about medicines you no longer take.
