Dosette Box Delivery
What is a dosette box?
A dosette box is a container to store your tablets. It also arranges your tablets by day and time of day. Every day is separated into 4 sections: morning, lunchtime, evening, and bedtime. Your tablets are pre-packed into the right time of day by our pharmacy team and delivered to your door every month for free.
Dosette boxes are sometimes also known as blister packs or medication boxes.
How can I receive one?
For patients on 4 or more medications, who struggle to manage their medication, Simple Online Pharmacy, can prepare and deliver your medication in a weekly dosette box. Our UK registered pharmacy can do this free of charge. To be eligible for this free service, you must be prescribed four or more repeat prescription items.
To sign up for our dosette box service, simply register for our online NHS repeat prescription service. Then, when placing your prescription order at nhs.simpleonlinepharmacy.co.uk, select ‘dosette box’ as your preference. Our pharmacy team will do the rest!
A dosette box is different from a 7-day tablet box and to our pill box service. With dosette boxes, your tablets are organised into 4, weekly trays. Each week is separated into days. Each day is then separated into:
We put your medications into their specific time slots for each day. So, if you take three tablets in the morning and two at bedtime, you will see all of these in your see-through blister; 3 in the morning; 2 at night.
Many people who are on a number of medications find it difficult to remember to always get the right tablets at the right times. To fix this, they will often buy a plastic tablet box, and organise and pop their own pills into the correct time slots.
With our Dosette Boxes, we make your life easier by doing all the pill-popping and organising for you! We remove the hassle of organising your own medication.
We can arrange your prescriptions each month from your GP (depending on your GP surgery), and deliver the completed Dosette Box to your door.
Dosette Box vs 7 Day Pill Box
There are some key differences between dosette boxes and 7 day pill boxes:
- For a 7 day pill box, you need to organise your own medication. With our Dosette Box, we organise your prescriptions, dispense your medication into the Dosette Boxes, and deliver to your door. For free!
- 7 day pill boxes only cover 7 days! We deliver either 28 or 56 days worth of dosette boxes depending on your prescription. This is far more convenient and takes away the hassle of organising and planning your medicines.
Medication Made Simple
The Simple Online Pharmacy dosette box service allows you to see all of your medicines laid out for the week. Medication aids allow you to clearly see what tablets need to be taken at what time of day. If you ever miss a dose, you’ll be able to see exactly what tablets you missed.
Some people find that using a dosette box saves them time on ordering, organising and taking their medication. If you struggle to stay on top of managing your NHS prescription tablets, this service may help you regain control.

Are dosette boxes free?
Usually, dosette boxes are part of a free pharmacy service to provide organised medication for patients who are on numerous prescriptions.
Do you do dosette box delivery?
Yes. For patients who have 4 or more NHS prescription items, we can make and deliver a dosette box if you choose this option.
How do you use a dosette box?
Times of the day and days of the week are labelled on the dosette box. You simply need to find the day and time, and push through the tablets out of the 'blister'. You will then have your medication in your hand, ready to take!
Can you deliver other medication?
Yes. If you are eligible for dosette boxes, we will also delivery any other medication you need alongside it. For example, your inhalers or creams.
Do you put pain killers in my dosette box?
It's up to you. As pain killers are usually taken only if required, it's usually best to provide these in the original box. However, if you always take your pain killers due to a chronic pain condition, you can request that these also go in your dosette box.
