Medication Pack Services

Half the battle in providing 'good medicine' is ensuring your patients take their medication, as they should. However, studies have shown 50% of patients' take their medication differently than prescribed.

You may be aware that 25% of patients forget to take their medication, or that 15% were confused about what to do. A lack of education in respect to drug handling and physical disabilities, like poor eyesight, also make controlling a patient's self administration of medication a real 'Pandora's box'. In a study of patients reporting non-compliance, 81% identified themselves as under-users, whilst 17% over-used medication. What is the result? High or low blood pressure, drowsiness, dizziness, heart problems, dangerous falls, a dissatisfied patient unnecessarily coming back to see you or hospitalisation for the very unlucky. But it doesn't have to be this way!
