Pharmacy and medicines management 

UCLH Pharmacy provides pharmacy services across UCLH. We aim to provide safe, effective and economical use of medicines while supporting education, training and research. Our pharmacy is closely involved in all stages of medicine use from agreeing contracts for the purchase of medicines through to assessing the outcomes of medicines.

The Head of Pharmacy is responsible for maintaining the high quality and safe and secure storage of medicines at UCLH.

The Use of Medicines Committee oversees medicines management issues including the trust formulary (a list of medicines that are approved for use within UCLH) and the assessment of new drugs. The Medication Safety Committee focuses specifically upon improving medication safety.

Pharmacy services are delivered from pharmacies at each of the main hospital sites: University College Hospital (UCH), University College Hospital at Westmoreland Street, The National Hospital, Mortimer Market (for tropical diseases and HIV), the Macmillan Cancer Centre (by Lloyds Pharmacy), The Royal National Throat Nose & Ear Hospital.

UCLH pharmacy also provides medicines production and medicines procurement/distribution from MHRA licensed units.
