Inpatient Pharmacy

Our pharmacists (chemists) and medicines management technicians provide a clinical service to our hospitals wards. 

They visit the wards and check the medicines of in-patients are correctly prescribed and make sure that they have enough medicine to last their stay in hospital. 

We also have pharmacies at each hospital site called TrustMed Pharmacy which provide your medicines from WHITE outpatient prescriptions.

Please note that none of the pharmacies at the hospital can provide medicines from GREEN prescriptions; Please take these to your local pharmacy outside the hospital.

The standard opening and closing hours of pharmacies in all three Leicester NHS hospitals are as below.
