  • Medicines Management - Around £6 million of medicines is returned unused to pharmacies every year across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent and vast amounts of medicines have to be destroyed because they can’t be used by anyone else. By reducing the amount of medicines being wasted each year, we could increase the available funding for other desperately needed health services. Would your PPG be interested in finding out about how patients, GPs and pharmacies can help to reduce waste?

  • Chris Chambers - Ways in which digital technology can be used to improve patient care.
