Community Pharmacy Update No.3
01 December 2014
Tackling waste
A project is currently being piloted by the medicines management pharmacy technicians to help tackle waste. The technicians, alongside the prescribing clerks from the pilot practices, are contacting patients to check whether all the items requested on their repeat list are actually needed that month. Where a patient is on a managed repeat scheme, the technicians will contact the pharmacy to advise of any changes made. It is hoped that this scheme will reduce over-ordering and waste. The practices involved in this pilot are Derby Road, Chesterfield Drive, Debenham, Dr Solway and Whale, The Grove and Haven Health.
