Share post:

The public is asked to note that from Monday, February 25 through Tuesday, March 5, 2019, the outpatients section of the Pharmacy Department of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital will be temporarily relocated to the QEH’s Infectious Disease Building, at the hospital’s Enmore Compound, Martindale’s Road, St Michael.

This interim relocation is to facilitate the industrial cleaning of the department.

During this relocation, outpatient dispensing will be closed on Tuesday, February 26, to facilitate the department’s move.

Outpatient dispensing services will be provided from the QEH’s Infectious Disease Building from Wednesday, February 27, through Friday, March 1, from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, and Sunday March 3.

The Pharmacy Department will be closed again on Monday, March 4, 2019, to facilitate the department’s return to its designated area.

The pharmacy will be open on Saturday, February 23, and Sunday, February 24, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to provide an extended dispensing service.

Patients are advised to have at minimum a seven day supply of all medications prescribed. As such, this extended dispensing service is simply a precautionary measure to ensure patient care is not compromised. The public is also reminded that QEH prescriptions may be filled at their nearest polyclinic.

The public is also asked to note that dispensing services for inpatients, staff and patients of the Artificial Kidney Unit will be provided from the appointments section of the Medical Imaging and Radiology (X-ray) Department on Wednesday, February 27, through Friday, March 1.

During this time the scheduling of X-ray appointments will take place in the Medical Records Department Inpatient Admissions Office; and Medical Records inpatient admissions will be facilitated in the central Medical Records Department. 

X-ray appointments and Medical Records inpatient admissions will resume normal operations on Tuesday March 5. Additionally, all dispensing services will recommence from the Pharmacy Department on Tuesday, March 5. (PR)
