Pharmacy Services to be delivered in-house

With effect from 1 November 2018 all pharmacy services for DCHS in the south of Derbyshire will be delivered in-house by the DCHS pharmacy department.

All stock will be distributed from Walton Hospital | All items will be dispensed from Walton Hospital

Services currently provided to wards, clinics, theatres and other sites will continue.

The pharmacy teams from both Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (Kingsway Hospital) and DCHS appreciate the help and support of staff through this period of transition, which we will make as smooth as possible. Further information will be provided as our plans develop. DCHS would also like to take this opportunity to thank Kingsway DHcFT Pharmacy for all their support with Medicine Management over the years.
