When you’re on a lot of different medicines, having them dispensed into a blister pack (sometimes called a dosette box) can be really useful, and this is something we can do for you.
To be eligible to receive blister packs, there are some criteria you need to meet:
Be on 5 or more medications
Have a condition such as arthritis that can affect your use of original packs of medication
Have a condition such as dementia or difficultly remembering to take medication
If someone helps you take your medication e.g. carer or nurse
If you meet any of the above criteria, we can help dispense your medication into these convenient packs for you, free of charge, so you’ll know exactly what to take and when.
Simply register with us for our home delivery service, and request a blister pack from our pharmacist.
What’s more, you will receive a free Live Well With Diabetes welcome pack* with your first repeat prescription delivery.
