NHS Waste Campaign

Every year thousands of unused inhalers end up in the bin whilst some patients end up in hospital due to under treatment or improper inhaler use.

Wasted or unused medicine(s) is a growing problem in the NHS that you can help tackle. Waste costs the NHS an estimated £300million every year which could be used for more hip operations, cancer treatments etc.

Only order what you need, your GP/Nurse will always prescribe enough to meet your clinical needs. If you order less or more than recommended you may need a clinica l review. Help us, help you!

Relievers: BLUE · GREEN maximum 1 per month
Preventers: PINK · BROWN · PURPLE lasts a month or two
