Please take any unsused/unwanted medication (tablets, etc) to the health centre pharmacy
Used syringes and needles
The surgery will no longer be able to accept sharps containers from patients for disposal. However, there is a local arrangement in place with the Health Environment Team at Hinckley & Bosworth Council for the collection of used syringes and needles. They can be contacted on: 01455 238141.
The collection service is weekly on a Wednesday between 9am and 2pm. Residents must be at the property to hand over the boxes to the collection operative. Alternatively, the boxes can be delivered to the council works depot at Middlefield Lane, Hinckley, between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
Can patients please note the following:
- Please ask your Doctor to prescribe a sharps bin for you to discard your used syringes and needles into.
- Place syringes and needles into the sharps bin.
- When you have filled your bin 4/5 you must get a new one from your GP.
