Pharmacy Referral Expectations

Clinical Pharmacists visit inpatient wards to provide medicines management services and advise on pharmaceutical care. Patient services such as medication review and medication counselling are part of this process.

Patients should bring any current medication (tablets, creams and/or inhalers) into hospital with them on admission as inpatients. Medication lists, such as yellow cards, are also encouraged. This ensures that the optimal information about medication being taken is available to the health team at the time of admission. Pharmacists may call a patient's GP or regular community pharmacist to confirm or clarify differences in medication history.
