Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS in the UK an estimated £300million every year.

Only order what you need

Your Medicines Bag

This bag helps keep your medicines with you when you move wards and go home from or come in to hospital. Your local NHS may use green or clear medicine bags.

Medication safety

Make sure you store your medicines thoughtfully and out of reach of any children that may be at risk. Stockpiling medicines increases the risk for children and others that may accidentally take them.
