Surgeries can no longer issue new sharps bins, or accept filled ones.
Any patients requiring sharps bins for the safe dosposal of needles and injections, will be required to sign-up to a Bucks County Council Service for both the provision of new sharps bins and the collection of filled ones.
From August 2019 patients requiring a sharps bin will need to contact Chiltern District Council to sign-up for the delivery/collection service.
Telephone: 01494 729000 Web address is: www.chiltern.gov.uk - select waste and recycling, then select healthcare waste.
We hold spare hearing aid batteries for the convenience of our registered patients.
Patient registered elsewhere will need to acquire batteries from the audiology department at Amersham Hospital, or their own GP surgery.
We cannot accept used bateries and these are regarded as Hazardous Waste.
Please dispose of them safely; such as the recycling centre or your local supermarket, many stores have battery collection bins, please check next time you are in town.
