    Hello, I am struggling to find an automatic medication dispenser that opens to reveal the tablets when it is time to take them. Does anyone have one they no longer need?

    Contact your local telecare department via Social Services. They might be able to provide you with one.

    My mum was given one from the community pharmacist via her GP - but 5 years ago, so funds might have dried up on that.

    Hers was a "Pivotell" - there are two for sale at present on that online auction site, priced at £10 - a considerable saving on the new price!
