Weekly Pill Pack (Dossett boxes) & Returning Medication

We provide a service for very vulnerable patients who are either non-compliant with their medication or struggle to keep track of taking their medication, where there could be a risk to safety. The service is free of charge and entails the dispensary making weekly medication packs for the patient. These are then either collected or delivered weekly to ensure there is no confusion between packs.

For enquiries please call the dispensary voicemail, leave your name, patients name if that is not yourself and your number and we will return your call.

Unused medication can be returned to the dispensary for disposal, there are some exceptions which included needles, insulin, epipens, jext. These need to be disposed of in your yellow sharpsafe and you must then call the local authority on 01604322322 to arrange collection of the sharpsafe from your home.
