NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Project Summary

Be Medicine Aware

Teva UK Limited and NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Partnership Project

This is a summary of a partnership project about how NHS East Riding of Yorkshire worked in a local partnership with the Teva Integrated Healthcare Manager and Teva UK Limited to address the issue of medicine wastage.

The objectives of this Be Medicine Aware campaign were to:

  • Reduce the amount of repeat prescribing across NHS East Riding of Yorkshire
  • Make patients aware that using their medication correctly will make them feel better
  • Encourage patients to ask themselves “do I need this medication?” before they tick the box on their repeat prescription slip
  • Increase awareness that patients can talk to their local pharmacist for help and advice
