Blister Pack Service
Blister packs are a perfect solution for patients who may have difficulty remembering to take their medication or are taking a number of medicines.
Blister packs work by grouping the patients tablets together based on the time of day each tablet is due to be taken: morning, lunchtime, evening and night time.
Blister packs help ensure that the right medication is taken at the correct time of day.
New customers are always welcome.
