Almost all prescription medicines or tablets can be dangerous if used by someone for whom they have not been prescribed or in a way that has not been agreed by a Doctor, Nurse or Pharmacist.
If someone dies it is likely that there will be unused prescription medicines or tablets which are no longer required.
You may also personally have medication which you no longer need.
Please ensure that all unused prescription medicines or tablets are returned to a community pharmacy as soon as possible in order that they can be destroyed safely.
Examples of such medicines include
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
