The health authority is looking at options for changing the way it gives medications. They hope that this will save money for the NHS and decreasing the amount of medicine that is wasted.
There are two aspects they are looking at:
1. stopping the automatic repeat prescriptions (as some people build up stocks of medications they are not always using)
2. stopping prescribing medicines that are easily available to buy.
There is more information, and forms for you to have your say, on the Healthwatch Website.
