The Pharmacy dispenses medicines prescribed within the hospital outpatient clinics. Prescriptions may be written on white hospital only prescriptions or on green community prescriptions. If you are given a white prescription it can only be dispensed by the hospital pharmacy, however, if you are given a green prescription this is for dispensing by any community pharmacy shop.
Bring all medicines that you use at home when you come into hospital (they tell our doctors and nurses about your current treatment)
Patient's own drug scheme
On admission, any medicine you bring with you will be assessed, recorded and placed in a bedside locker for your treatment on the ward.
A supply of medicines to take home will be provided for you by the hospital. This may contain both medicines that were brought into the hospital and new supplies provided by the hospital pharmacy. If any medicines have been stopped, started or had their dose changed during your stay, you will be informed by a member of the ward team and the contents of your bedside locker will be corrected.
if you have any queries speak to the ward pharmacist, ward pharmacy technician or a member of th enursing team.
Inpatients with Parkinson's Disease
We have developed a scheme called ‘self / designated carer administration of medicines scheme’ providing the opportunity for patients and/or carers to remain in control of their medicine administration.
The scheme is not compulsory. If you are asked and are interested in taking part a nurse or pharmacist will explain the scheme to you.
