Pharmacy

The hospital pharmacy is run by pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and attached staff.

It’s responsible for drug-based services in the hospital, including:

  • the purchasing, supply and distribution of medication and pharmaceuticals
  • inpatient and outpatient dispensing
  • clinical and ward pharmacy
  •  the use of drugs.

A pharmacy will provide a drug formulary for hospital doctors to use as a guide. It will also help supervise any clinical trial management and ward drug-use review.11
