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 site.
Pharmaceutical Services are established as a separate Clinical Support Directorate that has approximately 150 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.
