The Pharmacy Directorate philosophy is that we should meet the
key principles of the "Spoonful of Sugar", "Pharmacy in the Future"
and the "NHS Plan" documents, which stipulate that pharmacy staff
should make a useful and identifiable contribution to patient care.
The department has a key role in safe medication practice and
medicines management across the Trust.
The Pharmacy is located in the Pink Zone of
the Ground Floor, next to Therapies, The Directorate
Management is located in Martindale House, at the rear of the
Pharmaceutical Services are established as a separate Clinical
Support Directorate that has approximately 65 staff including
Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Dispensers, Assistant Technical
Officers, Pharmacy Health Care Assistants, an Information Analyst,
Clerical Officers and Porters. At any one time, we are training
four Student Technicians, three Pre-Registration Pharmacists and
staff from other Trusts around the region.
