Formerly St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Our Services A - Z - Pharmacy Department

About the service

Our Pharmacy Department operates a 7-day service to the Trust and provides a wide range of services to ensure safe, effective, timely, economical supply and use of medicines.  The Pharmacy Department has over 150 staff operating across Whiston, St Helens and Newton hospitals. We have established automated dispensing systems within the dispensaries at both sites.

Our '5 Star Patient Care' strategy is at the heart of all that we do; supporting our vision to provide world class services for all our patients by getting it right for every patient, every time. Pharmacy Services provided include dispensary services, patient facing clinical pharmacy including medicines reconciliation and clinical patient management, ward stocks management, procurement, aseptic services, medicines information, teaching and audit.

Both Pharmacy and the Trust have a long-standing reputation for being a friendly and rewarding place to work. Our last Investors in People assessment recognised our Pharmacy as an outstandingly good department for staff support and development.
