Your prescription

Your doctor may write a prescription for medication to take home with you. These will be dispensed by our pharmacy and a pharmacist will talk to you about how to take them correctly and tell you about any possible side effects.

Our pharmacy is staffed by qualified pharmacists and technicians who provide safe and effective medicines to all patients at The London Clinic. The pharmacy team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Pharmacists visit the wards everyday to:

  • advise medical and nursing staff about medication
  • review your prescription chart to make sure the medication is being used effectively for your condition
  • supply medication for you to use during your stay and when you leave
  • give you information and advice about your medicines

Please let your nurse know if you’d like to speak to the pharmacists when they visit your floor.
