New Pharmacy Services available at TRFT

17 May 2012 16:11:19


A new pharmacy is in full swing after it recently opened its doors to outpatients in Rotherham.  

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust opened a branch of Lloydspharmacy in the main entrance of Rotherham Hospital in April. 

The pharmacy serves patients who have been given prescriptions by the Trust’s outpatient clinics, which are largely based at the hospital. 

The pharmacy is in addition to the hospital’s own pharmacy department which continues to provide all other pharmacy and medicines management services to the Trust including inpatient and discharge dispensing, ward based services and medicines information. 

Speaking about the partnership, Pete Shergill, head of strategic services at Lloydspharmacy said: “We are delighted to be partnering with The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.  We bring with us experience of working successfully with a number of other Trusts, where we have helped reduce patient waiting times and create real cost efficiencies. Working with the Trust to set up the contract has been a pleasure and will form a great foundation for the future of the partnership.  

“We look forward to providing a dedicated, efficient, high quality dispensing service for Rotherham Hospital, which supports the hospital’s aim of delivering a more personalised and efficient experience for its patients.” 

Benefits of the new pharmacy include lower waiting times for patients, expert advice for those receiving medicines and a quick, convenient and accessible way of collecting prescriptions. 

Chairman of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, Peter Lee, added: “I am delighted to welcome Lloydspharmacy who will be working hand-in-hand with the Trust’s pharmacy and out-patient services to continue to produce a prompt and efficient service to our patients.”  

The Lloydspharmacy outlet at Rotherham Hospital also sells over-the-counter medications and a small selection of retail goods.
