The NHS is always bleating about needing more money, but they are so wasteful!
My DH is on dialysis. They changed the regime and as a result we have 30 boxes (in date) of dialysis fluids, 2 huge boxes of the plastic waste containers, 2 boxes of connectors and other bits and bobs all taking up a double wardrobe in our garage. Each fluid bag is in an airtight, sealed, thick plastic bag and there are 2 in a box. The people who deliver them wont take them back, neither will our hospital, The Consultant's advice was to empty them down the toilet!!! I would guess these would cost at least £10 a box, (probably more as they come in from Singapore!) Notwithstanding Covid they could be cleaned and re-used.
The same with all the drugs we have in our house and can no longer use (enough to kill a herd of elephants, nevermind one!) And how many other people are there in the same position - we can't be unique!
Anyway, if anyone knows of a way to recycle this stuff please message me.
(NB. the care the NHS give is 2nd to none - no criticism there - I just hate the waste!)
