Wellington Hospital Pharmacy service supplies medications to all inpatients at Wellington, Kenepuru and Porirua Hospitals.
Pharmacists provide a clinical pharmacy service to all the inpatient wards. The pharmacists review medicine charts, monitor drug therapy and facilitate the supply of medicines. Clinical pharmacists also advise on safe and effective use of medicines.
The pharmacy service also provides medicines information to other health professionals and patients and, where appropriate, pharmacists advise patients on how to best use their medicines. Other services include aseptic compounding of medicines and clinical trial services.
Wellington Hospital Pharmacy does not dispense outpatient prescriptions except for a restricted range of medicines that are not usually available from the community pharmacy.
