Medicines Optimising Team and Wastage

 

Working with the Medicines Optimising Team from the ICS we are keen to avoid wasted medications.

We would ask that you do not order medications that you do not need.

In addition if the amounts of your medications need reconciling so you can order all the medicines that you require at the same time, it would be helpful if you could let our prescribing clerk know the number of tablets you have left when requesting require to do this.  We aim to do this successfully for you on the first attempt, however, sometimes we get it wrong.  

It is also in most cases not possible to reconcile creams, ointments and inhalers as well as medication used on a PRN basis (when requried).
