The pharmacy department is responsible for providing advice about medicines and ensuring supply, to both inpatients on the wards and outpatients visiting clinics throughout the Royal Surrey Trust. The Team is made up of Pharmacists, Technicians and Assistants, many of whom are highly specialised and trained to cover specific areas within the hospital, as well as a dedicated procurement and admin team.
Pharmacy staff are able to advise patients on how to take and use their medications safely, talk through any side effects and discuss options for available over-the-counter medicines.
The pharmacy aseptics unit is responsible for the manufacture of certain medications such as intravenous chemotherapy and nutrition, as well as producing tailor-made doses for specific patients.
The team work together to ensure that any medicines prescribed are correct, appropriate, and supplied in a timely manner.
The Pharmacy Department is located on Level B, Outpatients wing.
