Welcome to the ELFT Pharmacy service. Our Pharmacy team is here to provide safe and effective clinical input on medicines to both inpatient and community teams.
Our team consists of specialist pharmacists, non-medical prescribers, technicians, dispensary support and peer support staff who have direct input into the running of our service.
We cover Tower Hamlets, City and Hackney, Newham, Luton and Bedfordshire. We have about 80 staff members and provide a service 6 days a week including bank holidays.
Our leading dispensing and distribution site is at Mile End Hospital where our pharmacy assistants and technicians safely provide medications for inpatient use as well as for Clozapine clinics.
Inpatient pharmacy teams
Our inpatient pharmacy teams visit the wards to provide medication-related advice to service users, carers and healthcare professionals. They often link in with the multidisciplinary team to guide and advise on treatment plans to ensure service users are able to get the best out of their medications, in the safest possible way.
