The public is kindly asked to note that from Monday, February 25 through Tuesday, March 5, 2019, the out-patients 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 has been effected to facilitate the industrial cleaning of the department.
During the course of this provisional relocation, out-patient 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. The Pharmacy Department will be closed again on Monday, March 4, 2019, to facilitate the department’s return to its designated area.
To mitigate against the possible impact of the closure of the Pharmacy Department on our patients, the Board of Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital will open the pharmacy on Saturday, March 2, and Sunday March 3, 2019, from 9:00 A.M to 1:00 P.M. to provide an extended dispensing service. This extended service is to ensure that persons with repeat prescriptions to be refilled on or before Monday, March 4, 2019, receive the necessary medication. 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.
All dispensing services will recommence from the Pharmacy Department on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
The Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital regrets any inconvenience caused, and we look forward to your continued support, and cooperation as we strive towards “Getting Better Together”.
