Since it started in July 2009, the pilot has proved the dispenser to be invaluable in helping people who failed to take their medication properly stick to their prescribed regime.

Of those who supplied feedback, an overwhelming 96% agreed the device had reminded them to take their medication, and as a result improved their health and made them more independent.
