Pharmacy Outpatient Services & Dispensary
Our dispensary provides medication to patients attending Accident & Emergency as well as Outpatient clinics across the hospital. Your newly started medication will be checked for safety and interactions with your current medicine and we will ensure that the Eight “Rights” of Medication Administration are met.
Right Patient—The drug prescribed is intended for you
Right Medication—The drug is the best option to treat your condition
Right dose—The prescription is the correct dose to treat your condition
Right route—The drug will be administered in the correct way and provided in a suitable way, for example providing liquid medication to children
Right time—The medication will be given at the correct times of day to ensure it works as well as possible
Right documentation—The prescription is legally accurate and stored confidentially
Right reason—The medication is appropriate to treat the condition
Right response—The medication has the desired effect and there are no unwanted side effects
Each of our dispensaries have robotic dispensing which has revolutionised our workflow. Our robots speed up the dispensing process, improve stock control, reduce waste and store medicines in a secure and controlled environment.
Please note—we cannot accept green prescriptions in the hospital dispensary. Please find your nearest local community pharmacy and they will supply these medicines for you.
