Medicines helpline

If you have any questions about medicines you've received from us you can contact our free and confidential medicines helpline, run by our team of specially trained, experienced pharmacists.

We're happy to take questions from a relative or carer of yours, but we can't answer questions if you haven't been treated at our hospital. We can only answer questions that relate to medicines that you've received from our hospital.

Some examples of questions that you might want to ask are:

  • When and how should I take my medicine?
  • Can I take other medicines at the same time?
  • Are there any possible side effects?

You can see answers to some common questions regarding the taking of medicines by viewing our patient information.

Please note that this medicines helpline is for University Hospital Southampton (UHS) patients only, and is not an NHS-wide service. If you are not a UHS patient, then please contact your local hospital for advice.

For advice relating to other medicines or your health in general, you should contact your GP or community pharmacist.
