Free Blister Packs

Blister packs offer a perfect solution for our patients who are taking a number or medications on a daily basis or for our patients who may have difficulty remembering to take their medication. Blister packs work by grouping each patients tablets together based on the time of day each tablet is due to be taken, usually morning, lunchtime, evening and night time.  Blister packs are very beneficial because they help ensure that the right medication is taken at the right time of day.

This service is offered free of charge by Doherty’s Pharmacy and new customers are always welcome.
