Introduction

Accredited by Trent Accreditation Scheme and Australian Council on Healthcare Standards, the Pharmacy Department provides 24-hours, 7 days a week medication dispensing and counseling services to patients and their relatives. We provide a 24-hour Drug Information Inquiry Hotline (2339-8964) for customers who encountered problems or uncertainties related to their medication use. Apart from helping patients to use medicines correctly, we provide 24-hour informational and advisory support to our associated doctors on medication use.

Service Scope

Inpatient and Outpatient Pharmacy Services

We shall dispense medication to patients according to doctors’ medication orders.  All the medicines dispensed are labelled clearly and checked by a stringent verification system.  When dispatching medicines to patients, apart from counselling patients on the precautions and appropriate use of medicines, we will also answer any enquiries on their medicines.
