Is now safer & more efficient!
Under the previous system, many patients had reported that they had built up a large stock of unused medicine that they did not request. This could not be stored safely and used within date. The change to how patients/carers now order medication has addressed this serious safety concern.
By ordering medications this way also means that your GP practice will have a clearer picture of the medicines you do and do not use. This will help with your discussions during your medication review.
Finally, it is important that NHS money is used as efficiently as possible. Medicines waste costs the NHS in Rotherham £1.5 million every year! This change will reduce medicines waste, allowing monies to fund other services to improve the health of the people of Rotherham.
