East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust Pharmacy Department is situated at both Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne District General Hospital. Both departments are open Monday to Friday – 9.00am to 5.30pm and Saturday – 9.00am to 12noon. An out-of-hours service is provided outside of these times.
The Pharmacy Department provides any additional medicines that patients may need when they are admitted to hospital and ensures that each patient has enough medication when it is time to go home. A team of pharmacy technicians and pharmacists review each patient’s prescription and are able to advise doctors and nurses on medication selection and administration. This ensures that the safest and most effective medication is selected for each patient. The Trust also provides a Clinical Pharmacy Service to a wide range of community settings.
Additionally, we provide information to patients on their medicines during their hospital stay and a dedicated patient medication helpline is available. Further information on this can be found below.
