Do you take your medicines multiple times a day or sometimes forget to take them? Then Dose Administration Aids are a great way to help you manage your medication dosages.
Here at the Friendlies Chemist we provide this service. Our dispensary staff will organise your medication in blister packs, either weekly, fortnightly or monthly packs depending on the number of times a day you take your medicines.
Things we need to start your blister packs:
- A Medication List (also known as a Summary) from your GP
- Prescriptions for all of your medicines to be packed
- You can also bring in any medicines you have at home (It is a good idea to have at least 24 hours’ worth of tablets left at home as it can take us up to a day to sort it all out for you.
- Have a chat to your GP and see if they are happy for us to request prescriptions on your behalf – some Doctor surgeries are unable to do this
Pop in store or call us on (07) 4783 7333 and chat to our friendly staff if you would like any further information.
