Lost, stolen or misplaced medication

Medications such as strong painkillers, sleeping tablets and relaxants can be abused and so become very valuable to those who can get hold of them.

Make sure you keep your prescriptions and medicines safe.

Do not share your medication with other people, this can not only be dangerous as it may not be safe, it is also illegal.

If you lose your medication or prescription, or suspect it has been stolen, we may ask you to report this to the police if it is a medication that can be abused.

The practice policy is that lost or stolen medication from the list below WILL NOT be replaced.
