About our service

With the ongoing importance of drug safety issues and continuing emphasis on cost-effective prescribing within the NHS, a strong clinical pharmacy presence on the ward is essential to ensure the use of medication is both safe and appropriate, and that patients receive the best possible care.

Our Clinical Pharmacy Service operates at ward level across a wide range of clinical areas. Clinical pharmacy teams are based on the wards, providing services that include medication history taking and drug chart review, patient counselling, attending consultant ward rounds, and preparation of discharge prescriptions. They are also a useful source of information for the nursing and medical staff on the ward, actively offering advice and guidance on medication issues to promote the safe and effective use of medicines. Our clinical pharmacy services are now extended to primary care with a team of GP Practice based clinical pharmacists at practices across the local area as part of the NHSE pilot.

The service is headed by the Assistant Director of Pharmacy, Clinical Services and supported by an experienced team of Lead and Senior Clinical Pharmacists. Services are provided at ward level by rotational pharmacists and clinical pharmacy technicians with lead and senior pharmacist support.
