Medicines helpline

If you have any questions about the medicines you’ve received to take home from hospital, you can contact our free, confidential medicines helpline. The helpline is run by our team of experienced hospital pharmacists who help answer any questions you, your relatives or carers might have.

The helpline is for questions about medicines you have received at our hospital only. For advice relating to other medicines, please contact your GP or community pharmacist.

Examples of questions you might want to ask are:

  • When and how often should I take my medicine?
  • Are there any possible side-effects?
  • I think there is a problem or error with the medicines I have been given?
  • Can I take other medication at the same time?
  • How do I get more supplies of my medicines?

The helpline is open Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
