Compliance Medicine Packaging

Compliance Medicine Packing Gilmours Havelock North Pharmacy

Organising Your Medicines

For patients who have trouble managing their medicines or remembering when to take them, we offer Medico Pak or Sachet Roll 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.

We offer a complete Medicine Utilisation Review service to help you organise and understand your medicines. Make an appointment for us to visit you at home or to bring in all of your medicines and one of our pharmacists will help you with your medicine problems and concerns. This is a government-funded service with no patient costs. If you feel you would benefit from this service please contact us to see if you are eligible.

Sachet Roll System

Making sure patients get the right medication at the right time.

The Medicine Sachet System is an excellent way to easily manage your medicines. Each sachet clearly displays your vital information, is perforated for convenience and comes in a handy dispensing box.

Your medicines are conveniently packed into the sachets at the appropriate dose times and each individual dose is labelled with your name, dose time and the medicines taken at that time.

They are great for:
  • Making it easier to remember to take your medicines
  • Customers on multiple medicines, or a complicated regimen
  • Travelling
  • Safety, all of the medicines are in one place and can be easily stored
