At Bridgetown Pharmacy we offer our customers a blister packing facility. This helps ease the stress involved for those taking multiple tablets daily and helps prevent confusion in relation to medication.
It is aimed at customers worried about taking their medication correctly and can be a help for carers or family members who care for an individual on multiple doses.
Blister pack can be provided both weekly or monthly with the customers medication allotted into different compartments daily depending on requirements.
Bridgetown Pharmacy offers a facility for our customers who require a regular set prescription. We keep prescriptions on file for our customers preparing them when notified of their need.
Just call in advance and your prescription can be made up in preventing any delays. Alternatively pop in and we will prepare your prescription as quickly as possible.
