As part of the healthcare we provide at Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital, we have a hospital pharmacy on each site. The pharmacies dispense prescriptions and provide medicines, information, medicines management support, and manufacture and quality control medicines.

We also have a manufacturer's "specials" licence, an investigational medicinal products (IMP) licence and a wholesale dealer's licence and are able to make and distribute a wide range of products. Find out more about our pharmacy specials.
