The Pharmacy Department of Queen Elizabeth Hospital has many future plans. Some of these are as follows:
1. The Redevelopment of Queen Elizabeth Hospital
The Pharmacy Department will be relocated in the block C2 under the master
plans and will be ready by the year 2005.
2. To achieve MS ISO 9000
In line with aspiration of the
hospital, the Pharmacy Department is planning to achieve MS ISO 9001:2000.
By the year 2003 staff are being sent for training on how to convert MS ISO 9001:1994.
3. Computerisation of the Pharmacy Department
This is another plan to computerise the Pharmacy Department so as to
be in the era of Information Technology (IT).
4. Clinical Pharmacy Services.
This will be carried out in depth if we
have enough Pharmacists
to get to the jobs.
5. Outpatient Pharmacy
The introduction of two new counter services - Caring Counter and
6, Caring Counter
This cunter will enable old citizens above 65 years of age, pregnant
women, infants below 12 months of
age and handicapped citizens to experience a faster supply of their medication on submission of their
prescriptions to the Outpatient Pharmacy Counter.
7. Express Counter
This counter will only entertain prescriptions containing only ONE item, to be dispensed to the patients.
