Clinical pharmacy service
The clinical pharmacy service is provided by directorate teams consisting of a clinical specialist pharmacist, a junior pharmacist and in some directorates, a technician. Practice research and drug usage reviews are actively encouraged within the directorates and are led by our specialist pharmacy team. The department is actively involved in patient education rehabilitation programmes for patients following cardiac surgery and for those with heart failure as well as individual patient medication consultations.
The provision of financial and drug usage information by clinical specialist pharmacists to divisional managers and clinical staff is well established. The senior principal pharmacist for support services together with the New Drugs Group, ensures appropriate introduction of new drugs into the Trust.
