In the last year alone, 28 tonnes of unused medicines waste was returned. The cost to NHS Fife was over £2.1 million.

Our key messages to our patients are:

    • Check before you order

    • Only order the medicines you need

    • Talk to the pharmacy teams in your local pharmacy or GP practice if you have questions about your medicines

    • Bring your medicines into hospital

    • Unused medicines are a safety risk

    • Unused medicines cannot be recycled but can be returned to your local pharmacy for safe disposal
