Happy World Pharmacists Day 2023

This World Pharmacists Day, please join us in celebrating our 1 Big Pharmacy Team!

Did you know, around 1,300 individual medicines are dispensed by the UHP inpatient pharmacy each day?

Did you know, Pharmacy is moving?
In order to refurbish our current inpatient Pharmacy, we will be relocating to what is the current REI on level three. This is planned for Friday the 13 of October.

That particular weekend we intend to provide a reduced emergency service from Pharmacy.

We plan to work all 48 hours that weekend so we can open at 9am on Monday 16 October in the new temporary inpatient pharmacy.

Thank you for your patience during this time

The photo below shows Pharmacy’s current robot which is being replaced by a new up-to-date machine to improve efficiencies and provide a faster service for patients.

Here’s a gallery of photos of just some of our fantastic pharmacy team hard at work:
