Waste not

The PCT have just starting running a medicines waste campaign. They have sent everyone bag inserts, posters, stickers, etc to try to better inform patients.

The GP surgeries are busy supplying this information with every repeat prescription that they issue so we have decided to put all our information away for the moment and to start using it once the GP surgeries stop.

We feel that this prolonged approach will have more of an impact if first the GP surgeries and then we give the patients the same messages about only ordering the medicines they need.

This approach also fits in better with what we are doing at the moment since from the last blog entry you will know that we are busy stuffing bags ourselves with the information about our new repeat prescription service.
