Our monitored dosage system, which we provide free of charge, repackages your medication into a weekly tablet organiser that is specific to you. It makes it easier for you or for those you care for to take the correct medication at the appropriate time. This can be patient, carer or GP requested and is proving extremely popular. The pharmacy, its pharmacists and staff have extensive experience in dealing with weekly dispensing.
The system benefits those who:
- Take multiple medicines
- Worry about missing a dose or too much accidentally
- Care for someone who takes multiple medicines
- Worry about taking and managing medicines on holiday
So how does it work?
Your medication is prepared in a special weekly organiser which has twenty eight separate compartments comprising of four compartments (morning, lunchtime, evening & nighttime) for each day of the week. A member of our pharmacy team will place your tablets in the appropriate compartments depending on the time of day at which you take them. The tablets in each compartment are clearly visible and identifiable and access to the tablets simply involves ‘popping’ the foil strip that seals each compartment.
Our Monitored Dosage System makes sure that the correct medication is taken at the correct time. This is a free service offered by the pharmacy feel free to discuss this service with a member of the pharmacy team the next time you are in or contact us on 014501188.
