Welcome to the Pharmacy Department

With the ever expanding health services, we are pleased to expand and build on the reputation of the Trust and department in an array of services designed to support and adapt to the needs of patients.

We employ multi-skilled staff including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, assistant technical officers, administrative teams, analysts and nursing staff.

We also support training and education to both pre-registration trainee pharmacists and technicians.

The department employs over 200 individuals across a variety of clinical and non-clinical pharmacy areas.

The services we provide include:

The main dispensary (situated on Level 1, near to the Children’s Hospital) provides outpatient and daycase medicines as well as medicines for inpatients.

The dispensary includes a dispensing robot to help ensure the safe, efficient dispensing and management of medicines.

Supplies are usually made in original packs for 28 days, unless a specific course for a different length of time is required.

If the medicine is only available from hospital, longer courses may be supplied.


The main dispensary opening times:
  • Monday – Friday 8:30am to 7:00pm
  • Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holidays 9:00am – 5:00pm

The majority of outpatient prescriptions are dispensed from the Boots Pharmacy near the main entrance of the hospital. Staff at your appointment will be able to advise you where you need to go.
