The Pil Bob makes it easier for an elderly person to remove tablets from a medication blister pack/medicine manager.
Using the central spike to pierce the backing paper allows the tablets to fall safely into the dish.
The benefits of using a Pil Bob include;
- safety – no need to use scissors or a nail file to pierce the backing paper
- convenience – no tablets lost on the floor (no spares are given in a medicine manager pack)
Pil Bobs are available to customers using the Lloyds pharmacy medicine blister packs and from some District Nurses.
They are not available to purchase.
