Are you a GP or a care agency, or are you having difficulty managing your medicines?

You may be eligible to have a weekly hot box delivered to your home every week. If your GP believes you would benefit from having weekly prescriptions this service may be for you.

This is where the GP can electronically prescribe one week worth of medication and then re-issue them post dated on a reoccurring basis to arrive at the pharmacy one week at a time.

Dosette box facts

There are a lot of people in the UK that manage their health conditions by taking regular medication. It has been found from a recent NHS survey that a staggering 50% of all UK adults take prescription medication daily. Nearly two million elderly have seven different prescription medications in a day.

When taking medication long-term becomes routine, some people find it difficult to remember when to take their medication.

Forgetting to take your medication could cause serious health problems such as unwanted side effects and ineffective medication treatment. In this instance is where a dosette box can help you.

A dosette box can be effective in helping you organise your medication.

They can also be perfect for people who have difficulty opening child-proof containers and ideal for caring for someone who requires help with their repeat medication.

Let’s have a look at all you need to know about dosette boxes right here.

What Is a HotBox

A dosette box, such as HotBox, is a dosette box made by Hot Chemist.

This plastic tray organises your drugs into individual compartments to use at different times of the day for every day of the week.

One HotBox contains one week of medication and has clear labels for the times and days, colour coded, to help you correctly remember to take your medicine.

Our dosette box will help you based on several factors, including your medication requirements and independent capabilities.

A lot of dosette boxes can contain too much information making them too confusing to use.

Why use a HotBox

Medicine management has become majorly tricky for a long time.

There are many conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, that require different drugs at various times throughout the day.

Luckily, our weekly HotBox dosette box can minimise these risks by helping people manage their medication more effectively and do it one week at a time.

HotBox can also be an excellent medical aid for your family member or professional carer involved in taking care of patients requiring daily medication.

Our HotBox weekly delivery is beneficial for those who have regular drug changes. It allows us to implement the change instantly before you receive the following weekly delivery of your HotBox dosette box.
