Medication made Simple
Managing lots of pills is an ongoing part of many people’s lives.
We all know the rules: take them on time, take them correctly and don’t miss a dose. The reality is that so many of us find it impossible to put that into practice with around 237 million medication errors occurring each year.
The time and effort you put into making sure all your medications are sorted out can be a real inconvenience. First, you have to get your repeat prescription from the doctor and then head to the pharmacy only to find yourself standing 2 metres apart in a queue of people, when you might rather be safely at home!
Then comes the really fiddly bit! Either popping all those boxes in a cupboard and trying to keep track of which medication to take when, or, deblistering your medicine boxes, remembering what’s what, and organizing them into Dosette boxes. No wonder over 50% of us in the UK don’t take our medicines properly. We all need a simpler solution.
Award-winning pharmacist and PillTime founder, Paul Mayberry, has run community pharmacies for over 20 years. He discovered that most of his patients were missing doses, forgetting what they had taken or just plain giving up. He knew there had to be a better way and he found it.
This brilliant solution uses robot technology to sort all your pills into handy, easy to open pouches. Because the pouches are filled by robots, double checked using artificial intelligence and overseen by a pharmacist the risk of errors associated with those fiddly Dosette boxes vanishes.
How do they do it? In the simplest way possible of course. PillTime pharmacy gets your prescription electronically from your GP surgery, organises all your tablets into pouches clearly labelled with times and dates, puts them on a dispensing reel inside a discreet box and delivers them to your door. They even add in non-pouched items like inhalers or creams, so no trips to the pharmacy at all. Even better, because it’s an NHS pharmacy, the whole service is free of charge.
Because of the unique pouch system, using PillTime means that you know exactly what you have taken each day and what is due next. It cuts down on all the clutter in your medicine cabinet, and, when we are all out and about again, PillTime pouches are so easy to travel with. Going out for the day? Tear off your ‘Morning’ pouch, your ‘Afternoon’ pouch, pop them in your pocket and your ‘Evening’ pouch will be waiting for you when you get home.
It’s a super simple to sign up to the service. Firstly, take 5 minutes to fill in the online form (at www.pilltime.co.uk) or call via their free phone number and they do the rest, synchronizing all your medication to one simple monthly delivery, sent to you at home!
