Waste of resources


THE NHS can be improved without any extra funding — it just needs to spend much more wisely.

repeat prescripti­ons that are sent automatica­lly should be reviewed more often. Too much is dispensed when it is no longer required.

After my mother-in-law died, I discovered that her wardrobe was knee-deep in drugs that had been delivered automatica­lly.

The pills filled seven carrier bags, which I returned to the pharmacy. Despite the fact that none of the boxes or packets had been opened, it all had to be destroyed.
