Information about your medicines
We understand that coming into hospital or attending an appointment can be daunting and, once you get home, it may be difficult to remember important information about your medicines.
If you have a question about your medicines or need further information about a medicine following a recent outpatient appointment or stay in hospital, please contact the pharmacy medicines information team by calling 01904 725960.
The medicines information team is available Monday to Friday between 9am and 4:30pm.

Help us to help you: Bringing your medicines to hospital
If you come to hospital for an appointment, a planned procedure, or even unexpectedly, you should always bring any medicines you're currently taking with you.
Bringing all of your current medicines with you helps the staff looking after you get the most accurate and up-to-date picture of your current medication regime. It also helps you stay in control of your own medicines and medical conditions and saves wasting valuable resources.
For more information on why it's so important to bring your medicines with you to hospital, please click here.
Please bring your medicines into hospital with you on admission. This will enable our pharmacy team to carry out a full review of your medicines during your stay.
