The service at the Glen Road, Plaistow hospital is being operated in partnership with Celesio UK, which operates Lloyds Pharmacy.

Obafemi Shokoya, chief pharmacist at Barts Health NHS Trust, said: “Working in partnership with LloydsPharmacy allows us to provide excellent direct clinical pharmacy care to patients on wards and in specialist areas, whilst ensuring the continued provision of a first-rate dedicated pharmacy service to our outpatients.”

Andy Burton, director of community services at Celesio UK, added: “Our partnership has demonstrated an enhanced service for outpatients, as well as staff and visitors, by reducing waiting times for prescriptions and providing a range of associated services such as over the counter medicines.”
