Introduction

Our Pharmacy Department provides medication related services to all departments in the hospital and to patients attending our hospital. The scope of service includes the procurement of pharmaceutical products from external suppliers, distribution and supply of medications to wards and clinical areas as well as dispensing of medications to patients. Our Pharmacy Department also plays a leading role in all policies and procedures relating to medication utilization in the Kwong Wah Hospital. Various quality and safety measures are in place to ensure medication usage in the hospital is rational, safe and effective. Apart from the supply of medications, we hold ourselves responsible for the provision of medication related information to facilitate clinicians and patients in obtaining maximum benefit from their drug therapies.

We also provide administrative support to the pharmacies of TWGHs Wong Tai Sin Hospital and Li Po Chun General Outpatient Clinic.
