Sometimes taking medicines can be confusing. Dose Administration Aids (DAA’s) help organise your medicines into special, easy to use weekly packs. They ensure you take the right pills, at the right time, on the right day. Your GP and pharmacist work together to take the hassle out of managing changes, scripts and long medicine names. Our pharmacists help you monitor your use of the medicine pack and advise you if you are unsure. They also help manage your prescriptions with your GP.
We use the SureMed packing system as our choice of Dose Administration Aid. These packs are securely sealed and labelled and remove the chance of mixing up tablets. When it is time to take your medicines, simply push out the contents of the blister through the foil backing. SureMed provides a visual cue, so you always know where you are up to. It’s as easy as that!
Dose Administration Aids give you the confidence to live independently and your family peace of mind that our pharmacists are looking after your medicines with you.
