Hospital Pharmacy Services


Pharmacy and Medicines Optimisation Department

The  department provides a complete range of pharmaceutical services to the Trust ensuring the safe and secure supply of medicines and the promotion of cost-effective, evidence-based prescribing.  We encourage patients to bring any ongoing medication into hospital with them to aid reconciliation of medicines. A patient's own medicines are kept with the patient in bedside medicine cabinets and, if appropriate used to ensure continuation of therapy during their in-patient stay.
