New pharmacy at city hospital

Have your say

Boots is to open a new pharmacy at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.

Outpatients will be able to collect prescriptions from the new pharmacy or from any Boots. Damian Child, chief pharmacist at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We have highly skilled NHS pharmacists working in our hospitals and this new service enables more of them to concentrate their efforts on ensuring the sickest patients in hospital get the necessary medication as quickly as possible.

“When patients are ready to be discharged they are not waiting longer than necessary for drugs they need to take home because we will have more of our pharmacy team available to dispense the drugs and offer advice.”
