Medicines Amnesty Month October 2015

PPG 3/10/15

The surgery Patient Participation Group launched a Medicines Amnesty Month on the 3rd October 2015. They camped outside Dike's, our local supermarket to raise awareness of a number of medicines related issues

  • how to dispose of out of date or unwanted prescribed and bought medicines safely
  • do not stockpile / over order medicines

The launch was a great sucess and 4 pharmaceutical waste boxes were collected.

The campaign was clear that medicines can be left at the surgery or local chemists throughout the year.
