The ‘Open Up About Medicines’ campaign aims to reduce medicines wastage and improve outcomes by encouraging patients to ‘open up’ in their interactions with GPs and pharmacists.
This includes opening up and checking the contents of prescription medicine bags to ensure they contain only what they need.
‘Open Up About Medicines’ was initially developed with Southampton City Clinical Commissioning Group working with Wessex Academic Health Science Network. It is now being developed by the Oxford AHSN with CCGs in Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
Campaign materials including posters and leaflets are available at 180 GP practices.
