The family of a "thoughtful, endearing" veteran who died after he was prescribed the wrong tablets, have urged people to check the labels on their medication.
Douglas Lamond died after under-pressure staff at a busy Boots pharmacy in Felixstowe supplied him with another patient's prescription.
The 86-year-old who was registered blind, received his weekly medicines in pill boxes assembled at his pharmacy with tablets separated into different plastic compartments to take on different days.
But on May 10, 2012, Mr Lamond was wrongly dispensed the anti-diabetic drug Gliclazide - used to lower blood sugar levels - and did not receive his usual prescription of Bisoprolol - a beta-blocker - due to an error.
An heard it was this "very significant accidental dispensing error which resulted in him receiving another patient's medication".
Mr Lamond's family now hope the same thing doesn't happen to anyone else.
