is costing the NHS millions...
About £300m of medicines are wasted each year in England, half of which is unnecessary, a Department of Health study found last year. If the rest of the UK is taken into account the figure is closer to 400m.
They also suggested unused medicines that are returned to pharmacies could be repackaged and made available again - at the moment any returned drugs have to be disposed of.
