Pancreaze

Postby theeeliteladyd » Thu Apr 23, 2015 2:56 pm

My mother just died recently from complications of pancreatic cancer. She has boxes and boxes of pancreaze - brand new, unopened, not expired. Does anyone know where I can donate these to?

Hi I'm so sorry about your mother, my Mum is fighting this disease at the moment! I know it is not the same but Mum had fortisip prescribed wrongly and we phoned the GP surgery who were glad of it! Maybe you could try them or the district nurses!

Hi 'theeliteladyd'

I am sorry to hear of your Mum's recent passing, please accept your sincerest condolences. Thank you for asking abou the unopened medication, i am sure that you are able to take the Pancreaze back to the pharmacy and they can be restocked if unopened boxes with a valid expiry date on them. They would have to be prescribed for any one else to use them, so see if they would be happy to have them back.

Of course please let us know if we can help further.

Kind regards,
Dianne
