Our pharmacists provide clinical pharmacy services to all inpatient departments at Whanganui Hospital. Clinical pharmacists visit inpatient wards regularly to review medicine charts, provide medicine management services, monitor drug therapy and supply medication.

The Whanganui DHB Pharmacy Service also provides medicine information and advice to medical staff and patients, as necessary.

We do not dispense outpatient prescriptions, except for a restricted range of medicines, such as chemotherapy, that are not normally available from a community pharmacy.
