Pharmacy and Medicines Management

There are pharmacy dispensaries at three hospitals within the Trust. These dispense medicines to patients for use on the wards and to take home (TTO) when they are discharged from hospital. They also dispense medicines for outpatients.


All medicines are currently included in the Trust's medicines formulary (a list of medicines approved for use within the Trust).
