Open the bag campaign

Open the bag campaign

November 19, 2018

Hertfordshire and West Essex (STP) Sustainability and Transformation partnership campaign ‘open the bag’ campaign, goes live this month. This campaign tries to get patients to check what has been dispensed for them before they leave the pharmacy so if a medicine is not needed it can be returned to stock and labelled on the prescription as not dispensed. This should reduce waste/hoarding of medicines and is being launched across all three CCGs in the STP.

All community pharmacies have been delivered the poster and stickers and Hertfordshire LPC strongly encourage you to participate in this campaign by displaying the poster and using the stickers available on each prescription dispensed which will further demonstrate the value of community pharmacy.
