Medications required by patients in the hospital will be prescribed by the doctor and provided by the Hospital's Pharmacy Services.
There are clinical pharmacists working on each ward to ensure that your medications are supplied. The nursing or medical staff will administer these to inpatients, and on discharge enough medication to last for three days will be dispensed for you to take home if needed. There is no charge for medications while you are an inpatient or upon discharge.
Please note that approved outpatients who have their medications dispensed at Canberra Hospital Pharmacy are required to pay a contributional co-payment. For more information on inpatient, discharge and outpatient medications please contact the Pharmacy administration on the number provided.
