How you can help to tackle waste

We need your help to tackle medicines waste and ensure our resources are used better.

You may see examples of medicines waste in your personal life, if you take medicine yourself or if you care for someone e.g. a parent or a child and elsewhere on this site we tell you how you can help with this. (links to other pages).

You may also see waste at work in how we manage medicines use, from ordering and stock control, to packaging and dispensing.

Do you have any ideas which could help reduce medicines waste within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde?

If so, we want to hear from you.

Please send your suggestions to [email protected]
