Pharmacists at both hospitals provide the highest possible care for patients and their medication needs. We also provide a wide range of services for clinicians, nurses and other health care professionals.

The pharmacy can provide services such as dispensing medicines, ward and clinical services, sterile production (aseptic) as well as provision of medicines information.

We have expanded our service by using a pharmacy ward-based discharge to reduce the time taken to complete a patient’s discharge and increased the use of patients own medicines.
