The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has started a free home delivery service of prescriptions for its out-patients.

A statement form the hospital said the service was officially launched on Tuesday, April 13, and will operate Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Out-patients whose appointments have been deferred due to the current public health emergency will have their prescriptions prepared by their clinic physician and sent to the Pharmacy Department for processing.

Out-patients with repeats are asked to call the Pharmacy Department at 536-4804 to place their orders at least three to five days prior to the start date of the repeat medication.

Out-patients obtaining repeats must provide their name, Barbados National Registration Number, hospital number, preferred delivery address and a current contact number to the pharmacist on the line.

Patients must present their national identification card for verification, then print and sign their name upon receipt of the package. Is the patient is unavailable, the recipient of the package must present the patient’s Barbados National Identification Card, then print and sign their name on the patient’s behalf.  

Patients are advised to thoroughly examine the medication before taking it and report any concerns immediately to the Pharmacy Department at 536-4804.

If patients experience delays in reaching the pharmacy at the 536-4804, they can call the QEH Help Desk at 536-4800. (PR)
