Disposal of Unwanted Medicines

Pharmacies are obliged to accept back unwanted medication from patients. On return of medication, the pharmacist must sort them in to solids, liquids and aerosols and the local NHS England team will arrange for a waste contractor to collect them.

Contractors requiring an interim collection of patient returns should contact NHS England: england.lancsat-pharmacy@nhs.net stating Fcode, pharmacy address and the number of bins that need collecting.
