The pharmacy team consists of a palliative care pharmacist and a pharmacy technician. The pharmacist provides a clinical pharmacy service to patients and staff in all the different teams based at the Hospice. In-patients see the pharmacist on arrival to ensure that the pharmacist understands your home medication. On discharge patients see the pharmacist again to ensure you understand any changes that have been made to medicines.
At any point in your stay, we can provide a card that lists your medicines, what they’re for and when to take them. The pharmacist is always happy to answer questions about a patient’s medication. The pharmacy technician ensures there is the necessary supply of all the medicines needed.
We offer a range of services which provide support for patients 24 hours a day.
We offer a range of education and training opportunities to NHS and non-NHS staff.
