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
