SWLEOC pharmacists help to look after your medicines, and advise on their use. The senior pharmacists are also qualified to prescribe for you whilst you are an in-patient, which allows us to respond to changes in how you are feeling.
A pharmacist joins the doctor and senior nurse on the daily ward round, which is your chance to raise any issues to do with your recovery.
We are supported by the pharmacy team in the main dispensary in Epsom Hospital, who supply the ward stock and dispense medicines for you to take home at discharge. We aim to have these ready well before you go, and you can help us with this by making sure your usual medicines are in good order when you bring them in.
