Clear out the Cupboard

I’ve just been through a clients’ medicine cabinet and found over £500 of unused medication!  Have you checked your medicines recently?  Take a look now and make sure you’re not overstocked – every little helps!

Campaign Launch

May 3, 2021

I am actively campaigning to help our NHS.  It is estimated that £300 MILLION is wasted EVERY YEAR in unwanted prescription medication.


As a home carer, I help my clients with their medication.  It upsets me to see how much medication is wasted, so I have put together a video on how you can do your bit to support our NHS.
