NHS Leeds North CCG plans to introduce a proactive approach to ensuring people have the best support when taking medicines.
People will be encouraged to return their unused medicines and, where appropriate, undertake a medicines review.
They have asked the NHS West & South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Commissioning Support Unit’s Communications and Engagement Team to support the campaign and develop a communications plan to educate the local population regarding medicine waste.
Before this starts it is important to understand people’s current habits around unused medicines.
