Bringing your medicines with you

Gen Image

When you come into hospital as an in patient or out patient, it is very important that you bring all your medicines with you.  We need you to do this so that we can ensure that we give you the appropriate treatment.

You need to bring in all of the medicines that you are using including any herbal medicines, vitamins and medicines that have been bought for you.   If you are a carer escorting a patient please make sure that you bring all of the patient’s medicines with you when you visit.

Please make sure that you bring the medicines in their original boxes and bottles that the pharmacist put them in or that you bought them in.
