Medicine Vending Machines (OTC)

Intelligent Vending Ltd >> Customised Vending Machines >> Medicine Vending Machines (OTC)

Vending machines are an excellent way to sell medicines and related products in day to day usage, for example, aspirin, paracetamol, ibuprofen, as well as products for relief from indigestion and heartburn. These products are generally small and well packaged, so they can be delivered through a range of compact machines, such as those typically found in washrooms and toilets. The vending mechanism is straightforward and could be wholly mechanical, operated by battery, or connected to the mains. Such possibilities provide utmost flexibility in terms of location and space. Floorstanding vending machines could also be used if a full retail experience is required (such as NHS or Pharmacy environments), and these could offer a much wider range of products vending at a higher price point.

Medicine Vending

Machines selling the above items, plus condoms, feminine hygiene products, and tights etc are already a common feature in pubs, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, colleges, universities and offices etc, but there are many possibilities to extend the product range beyond the common items. A range of basic first aid and related items eg plasters, antiseptic creams, nail files and scissors, eye drops, cold sore treatments could all be delivered this way, plus sun tan lotions and after sun cream etc.

Clearly, common sense needs to be used when vending medicines of any description, especially to avoid access by young children. Location of machine is often the key to this, and it is best to site medicine vending machines, even those vending only OTC products (over the counter), where they can be subject to adult supervision if at all possible. This is not a problem in adult only settings, but it could be where children are frequent users of the facility. On busy sites, machines could be located close to normal check-out locations, offering the multiple benefit of easy access, oversight, and a means of relieving staff when things are hectic. Specific licenses are also commonly required to vend medicines, so our clients do need to ensure they are appropriately covered if they wish to move into this sector.
