All Pharmacies in UK accept used medicines. (DOOP) They all go to be incinerated. The storage conditions and possible risk of contamination cannot be guaranteed and so they cannot be reissued to other patients. We used to send unopened, sealed packages in date to foreign aid, but the aid agencies said that if they were not good enough for UK patients, they are not good enough for patients in war and Famine zones. So it all goes to waste. I won't go into how many times I get a black bin bag brought back by someones relative, and when we open it up there are several months worth of unopened medicines, more ordered when they had plenty and were not using them, all because it is their "right"(and it is free). we don't get a lot back from patients who pay for their prescriptions. When some tablets are £1 each, and some inhalers over a hundred pounds a throw, I get somewhat wound up.
On a day when I am getting wound up by politicians, and their minions, don't get me started.
Someone outside the polling station asked if she could see my card. She got a curt NO, its supposed to be a secret ballot, and she shrank back. The polling officer at the door smirked.
The jehovahs witnesses at the door got a short answer as well. I do not want to go to a convention in Coventry.
