Leading UK pharmacy packaging provider, Valley Northern, has been awarded national registration for UK design of its printed medicine tablet carton range, ProBox®. The company is now the only UK supplier of branded pharmacy design printed tablet cartons.
In 2014, over 1,050 million prescription items were dispensed, a 55.2 per cent increase since 2004. However, with government funding for pharmacies changing to a performance-based model, pharmacies across the UK are under increasing pressure.
The ProBox® range is one of the many products from Valley Northern that increases patient safety while offering time saving efficiencies to pharmacy staff. ProBox® cartons are available in six of the most common tablet carton sizes and have a dedicated carton dispenser that maintains carton organisation and clearly shows product reference codes for easy reordering.
“Our ProBox® carton design clearly indicates that the box contains NHS prescription medication, meaning patients can easily distinguish it from other over the counter medicines or generic packaging,” said Oliver Pittock, managing director of Valley Northern.
“By receiving national registration of the ProBox® design, pharmacies choosing the product can do so knowing that they are receiving a high quality, standardised product that significantly helps increase patient safety. Combined with our new delivery guarantee, which guarantees orders placed before 2.30pm are delivered the following working day, we are at the forefront of supporting both large and independent pharmacies with cost and time saving efficiencies. We understand the pressures pharmacies are under and we are committed to continue to bring new and innovative products to the market to support those working across our healthcare community.”
The ProBox® tablet carton range is designed with a pre-defined space for administrative and storage guideline labels as well as strong lock-ends that reduce the risk of medication falling out and being lost.
