If you are taking any tablets or other medicines, including eye drops, inhalers, patches, gel for pain and supplements, it is very important that you bring these with you on the day of your admission. This will allow the doctor and pharmacist to review your medicines and know exactly what medicine(s) you are taking.
Ensure that you have a supply of medicine in case the pharmacy does not have a particular item in stock.
If you are an inpatient, these medicines must be given to the nurse admitting you, and they will be returned to you for your weekend leave and when you are discharged. No additional medication will be supplied on discharge. You will be given a new prescription, which you can take to your GP or local pharmacy.
