Monitored Dosage System (MDS)

Are you looking to organise your medications? Not to worry, we provide a Monitored Dosage Service in Birmingham.

Our team at Kings Pharmacy have years of experience working with patients and understand the day to day requirements. The Monitored Dosage Service can help you get 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 Monitored Dosage Service?

The NHS Monitored Dosage Service is for all dispensing patients who are on three or more types of daily tablets. 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 have your blister pack delivered using our prescriptions delivery service.

What does a Weekly Blister Pack look like?

Each weekly blister pack is divided into seven days (your 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 Monitored Dosage Service, simply contact us at Kings Pharmacy and we can discuss whether the service will work for you.
