Why choose us

We spend over £60 million a year on medicines to treat both inpatients and outpatients. These medicines are all ordered and supplied by the pharmacy.

The pharmacy has an automated dispensing system (robot), which helps us to provide a safe and efficient service, supplying both stock items to wards and items for individual patients.

We also have two aseptic compounding units, which enable us to provide intravenous chemotherapy, nutrition and other injections in a safe, ready-to-use form.

Through speaking to patients and health-care staff, and by using a variety of computer systems, our clinical services team help to ensure that medicines use is both safe and effective.
