Ashington House Surgery is supporting Intercare Medical Aid for Africa
Intercare are a charity whose work involves sending unused medication and equipment to Africa where millions of people have to go without treatment for everyday illnesses. Intercare supports 121 health units in Ghana, Camerooon, Tanzania, Zambia, Sierra Leione and Malawi. The charity has so far sent more than £10million worth of medicines to these countries but more help is still needed.
The charity will accept any unopened medications, complete strips of tablets within their original packaging, injections which do not need refrigeration, creams, eye drops/ointments, dressings and bandages. All medicines need at least 15 months expiry dates.
The charity does not accept controlled drugs, glass bottles, incomplete strips of tablets, items that require refrigeration or used syringes or needles.
Ashington House Surgery would like our patients to support us with this charity, if you have any medications that are still in date that you no longer use or need, please bring them into the surgery and we will arrange a collection by Intercare.
Should you have any questions or queries please speak to reception.
