If you need to be admitted to one of our wards or units, it is important that you bring all of the medicines that you are currently taking with you if you possibly can. This allows the clinical team to know exactly what you are taking and will help to avoid any delay in you receiving medicines you need.

Queries about medicines
If you have any questions about your medicines, it is usually best to discuss them with the pharmacists who supplied them to you. If you are a patient under our care, you should initially contact your healthcare professional, care coordinator or key worker who will be able to help you and can put you in contact with a clinical pharmacist if needed. Alternatively, for general queries, you can contact us by e-mail at email@example.com. This route should not be used for anything that requires an urgent response.
