We offer FREE blood glucose testing which is one of the main components in the diagnosis of diabetes.

It takes less than a minute for the machine to read the sample.

It is important that you take the right dose of your prescribed medicines at the right time each day to get the most from your medicines to control your condition as much as possible. This can sometimes be difficult if you take more than one medicine. One way in which this can be made easier is for your medicines to be supplied in a Monitored Dosage System, which provides you with a separate compartment for each dosage time of the day.
