Roadshows urge us not to waste medicine
1:00pm Sunday 17th March 2013 in News
A ROADSHOW urging patients not to waste medication will be in north Essex this week.
The NHS say in the east of England, unused or partly used medicines have cost £34 million - enough to fund 1,350 more nurses.
The campaign urges people to return unwanted medicines to their pharmacy and think twice before ordering repeat prescriptions.
Roadshows, running from 10am to 4pm, will be at Asda Harwich today, Pier Avenue in Clacton tomorrow, Market Day in Braintree on Wednesday and Highwoods Tesco on Friday.
