Robotic Weekly Medico Packs
Here’s a Close Up of how Medico Pak works...
About this service
This service is designed for people with long-term illnesses who may need support with their medicines. An assessment is used to identify the things that affect their ability to take medication as prescribed. Pharmacists work together with the patient to address each issue. The pharmacists are able to assist you with managing your medications and can coordinate your medications so that your prescription repeats happen all at the same time and therefore require only one trip to have your prescriptions refilled. They can also provide you with a reminder service (via text message, email or phone call) to let you know when your next supply of medications is ready for collection. If you are having difficulties managing your medicines (e.g. forgetting to take them), please ask your pharmacist whether this service is right for you.
How Does Medico Pak Work?
Medico Pak is a simple but very effective way of managing your medication and is able to be used by all age groups from young people to the elderly. Medico Pak has been designed to make it easy to carry your individual daily doses with you wherever you go in sturdy, blister paks.
Why use Medico Pak?
Medico provides an alternative form of packing allowing you to see exactly what doses are due. Each Medico Pak is packed by our robot and then checked by our pharmacist according to your individual prescription so you can trust that your medication dosage is accurately and correctly dispensed.
Who should use Medico Pak
For patients who have trouble managing their medicines or remembering when to take them we offer Medico Pak compliance packing. We can organise your medicines into calendar packs so that you take the right dose of the right medicine at the right time. Talk to any of our staff about managing your medicines.
