Every year in NHSScotland, £20 million is spent on medicines that are unused and can’t be recycled.
You can help tackle this issue by speaking up whenever you see medicines waste.
This could be in your home, if you take medicine yourself or care for someone else who does.
Or it could be at work, if you see waste in the way medicines are packaged, stored, and stocked.
The Speak up! campaign has been launched in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to raise awareness of the significant and growing problem of medicines waste and to let you know what you can do to help tackle it.
Help us to tackle medicines waste and use our resources better.
Speak Up! It’s our money. Our Service.
