|We have two out-patient pharmacies. One is situated at the Accident and Emergency Centre and the other is in the main hospital.
Medication is only administered to admitted patients on the written request of the patient’s doctor. We dispense medicines on prescription only to out-patients and serve patients seen at the Hospital, other private and public hospitals and from private medical practitioners.
The drugs supplied are of excellent quality at the best price possible. We are able to offer
competitive prices due to the excellent discounts and bonuses we negotiate with suppliers which
we then pass on to patients.
