Pharmacy

The Pharmacy Department prepares medication for inpatients, some outpatients and patients being discharged.

The Main Pharmacy Department is located on the ground floor of the main hospital building.

The primary role of the Pharmacy Department at Weston Area Health Trust is to care for inpatients of Weston Area Health Trust, through ensuring the best use of medicines, and providing information about medicines to both patients and to the professionals who treat them.

Hours of opening: Mon to Fri: 9 – 5pm, and Saturday 9 –12:30pm

We do not supply medication for outpatients. We work closely with the Lloyds Outpatient Pharmacy, which is situated on the ground floor, who dispense medication for hospital outpatients. Neither pharmacy is able to dispense prescriptions written by GPs.
