How our service can help you
Our mission is to provide an outstanding pharmacy and medicines optimisation service.
The pharmacy service supports patients, service users and carers, as well as our healthcare staff to achieve safe and effective use of medicines by providing a high quality and friendly service. We aim to ensure that you are prescribed, supplied, and administered medicines which are optimised for you, at the time that you need them. We do this by providing:
- Accurate and independent information and education about medicines to patients, service users and carers as well as other healthcare professionals.
- Support to ensure that medicines management resources are used cost effectively within CPFT
Medicines for appointments and hospital visits
Outpatient appointment: If you are visiting the hospital or one of our services for an outpatient appointment, please bring a list of your medicines to your appointment. This will help your doctor (or healthcare professional) ensure that you are prescribed the most appropriate treatment. If you require a new medicine, your doctor will usually ask your GP to update your repeat prescription and to supply the new medicine. If the medicine is required urgently, or is only available in hospital, pharmacy staff will supply the new medicine from the hospital pharmacy.
Inpatient admission: If you are being admitted to the hospital then please bring your medicines with you in their original containers. The hospital pharmacy may not stock all the medicines for all of the conditions that you have, so leaving your medicines at home may result in delays with your treatment. Please bring at least two weeks supply of medicines with you. If your medicines are usually supplied from your pharmacy in a compliance aid, then please bring your compliance aid with you.
During your hospital stay you may meet a variety of members of the pharmacy team. The pharmacy team will supply any new medicines and will advise on how your medicines can be optimised to meet your needs. When you leave hospital a member of pharmacy, or nursing staff, will discuss any new medicines with you. We will ensure that you have at least seven days supply of your medicines to take with you when you leave hospital. This may be a combination of medicines supplied by the hospital and medicines which you have brought with you from home.
