Blister Packs

Do you struggle to organise medications and find it difficult to remember to take them at the correct time each day? Not to worry, we provide a Blister Pack Service in Edinburgh.

When you are managing multiple conditions, trying to stay on top of which meds to take when can be overwhelming. The Blister Pack Service can help you get back on track. Our Pharmacists will sort your medicine by date and time ensuring that your medication is always organised, saving you time and keeping your dosage on track!


What is a Blister Pack Service?


A blister pack service is for all dispensing patients who are on three or more types of daily tablets. Your GP will decide if this service is appropriate for you and will refer you to our pharmacy for a supply. Your normal daily medications will come in weekly blister packs to help you organise your tablets. Therefore, it’s easier for you, or your carer, to make sure you are taking your tablets as prescribed. It’s easier to spot a missed day or if multiple daily dosages have been taken on a single day.


You can collect your weekly blister pack from the pharmacy or have it delivered using our prescriptions delivery service.

What does a Weekly Blister Pack look like?

Each weekly blister pack is divided into the seven days of the week along one side. Then, across the top are the times of the day for taking your medication. Each “blister” contains one or more tablets that need to be taken on that day and at that time.

So, weekly blister makes make a great at-a-glance visual aid for whether you’ve taken your tablets yet.

A weekly blister pack is a great tool for organising your meds. So, if you are interested in our blister pack service in Edinburgh, simply contact us at Colinton Mains Pharmacy and we can discuss whether the service will work for you.
