For some reason medication refill kits are not sold in the UK (perhaps EU).


No doubt some hand wringing snowflakery and rear-end covering due to liability issues.

I also recollect that as a first aider in the UK, you can only assist people to take their own medicine. Giving medicine, no matter what it is, is in the realms of health care professionals and pharmacists.


It's odd, some sort of bureaucracy getting in the way for sure.
Can buy box of aspirin no problem, trying to find individually wrapped aspirin or any unitized medication, no chance.

Where are you based? In Europe, you generally get the medication in blister packs, which you can cut/tear into individual packages.

UK. Yeah, but have to ensure labelled with expiry etc. More convenient if in a satchet. It's odd that water tablets usually come packaged this way, but otc medication isn't.

Normally every two years I look at the kits and every four or five I rip them back apart and rebuild and update them
