Get it on time

Get It On Time logoWe want to make sure that everyone in a care home or hospital gets their medication on time - every time.

If people with Parkinson's don't get their medication on time, their ability to manage their symptoms may be lost.

For example they may suddenly not be able to move, get out of bed or walk down a corridor.

Why it's important to get medication on time

People with Parkinson's and their carers talk about why it is important to get medication on time, and their experiences in hospitals.

Duration: 8 minutes

So we've produced free Get it on time resources to help people explain their medication needs to staff. This includes a Get it on time washbag, medication record and other resources.
