A BLISTERING RESULT!

Spirit Pharmacy is the UK's only home delivery pharmacy

offering tailored services for people living with diabetes.

Their mission is to make accessing advice, education,

medication and helpful items as simple as possible for

people living with all types of diabetes. As the current

UK lockdown eases, and the country opens up again,

Spirit have pledged to keep services such as blister

pack dispensing & delivery free, whereas many local

pharmacies may have to begin charging for delivery again

as people return to visiting their counters.

Zara Syed, Chief Pharmacist, says, "For many

people, treating their diabetes alongside other complex

conditions they may have, means taking several different

medications every day. Lots of our customers are on at

least six regular medications or more, with some on up to

30-plus. Many of these are in pill form, alongside injected

medications such as insulin."

When you're on a high number of tablets, it can be

increasingly hard to remember what to take and when,

especially with different doses for each medication.

Doling out the pills for the morning, lunchtime, teatime

and bedtime can be a bit tricky for yourself, your

family members, or carers. "That's why we encourage

our customers on 6 different daily tablets or more to

take advantage of our free blister pack dispensing and

delivery service, continues Syed. "Blister packs are

handy plastic containers that split your medicines into

little compartments for different times throughout the

day. Our highly qualified pharmacists ensure that each

compartment has the right medicines for each time

period, so you simply 'pop' the blister and take your

meds. It eliminates the need to fiddle around with lots of

different bottles, peering at the labels, and removes the

risk of getting the dosage wrong."

The Spirit Pharmacy service dispenses tablets into

these blister packs for free, delivering them safely and

quickly to your doorstep for no charge. "Our customers

really appreciate the extra help, and the time saved having

to dish out the medications themselves," says Syed, "It's

particularly useful for people with arthritis, poor eyesight,

or memory issues, but is available to anyone on several

medications who simply wants the convenience. Our team

have years of experience helping people with diabetes

and take additional training in caring for people with the

condition, in order to offer the best advice."

For new customers who join Spirit Pharmacy, there's a

Live Well With Diabetes welcome package. This includes

useful materials such as heel cream, foot care guides,

hypo kits, monthly tracker sheets, and ideas for healthy

food swaps. These helpful items can have a big impact on

wellbeing for people living with diabetes. Customers with

Type 2 diabetes also have access to Spirit's free online

education courses.
