Every year thousands of unused inhalers end up
in the bin whilst some patients end up in
hospital due to under treatment or improper
inhaler use.

Wasted or unused medicine(s) is a growing problem in
the NHS that you can help tackle. Waste costs the NHS
an estimated £300million every year which could be used
for more hip operations, cancer treatments etc.
Only order what you need, your GP/Nurse will always
prescribe enough to meet your clinical needs. If you
order less or more than recommended you
may need a clinica l review. Help us, help you!
