Dosette pill boxes

Lloyd's in our area stopped filling the blister packs a couple of months ago. My sister is severely disabled and it takes her carers a very long time now to dispense her tablets from numerous boxes.

I loved the idea that the box could be replaced by a chart telling you when to take your pill.

Tried that with someone and it made no difference.

I think Lloyds and Superdrug will still offer this service.

Also, unlike Boots, they pay their taxes!!!

Ah I see

I think you can still buy the boxes, it's the filling of them in the pharmacy that is to stop.

Try this company - They have a Pillmate large multi-dose weekly pill box £3.81

Of their time and money, I expect.

Shocking, whatever are they thinking! :-0 :-0

Shocked to hear Boots are to stop these. We don’t need them, yet, but I know how vital they are to some.
