Storing medicines in hot weather

22 July 2013

Across much of the UK, the sun is shining and the temperatures are high. It is important to keep your all of your family’s medicines in a cool place, so they are not damaged.

You can store medicines in a cupboard, keeping them away from heat and direct sunlight.

Ramadan and medicines

10 July 2013

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and a time when many Muslims will fast between the hours of sunrise and sunset.

Some children and young people may therefore choose not to take medicines during this period. These usually include medicines taken by mouth (such as tablets, capsules and liquid medicines), through the nose and rectally (in the bottom).

You don’t need any experience. It won’t take up too much of your time, and you can volunteer from home.
