Our team of children’s pharmacists and technicians work across Evelina London Children’s Hospital to make sure medicines are prescribed and administered safely and effectively.
If your child is prescribed medicines during their hospital visit, our specially trained team can offer advice and answer questions.
We have a dedicated children's pharmacy on the ground floor of Evelina London. It is open Monday to Friday, 10am to 5.30pm.
Please be aware that any medicines prescribed during your appointment can only start to be prepared once you come to the pharmacy. This means that there may be a long wait of over an hour to collect medicines.
Please be understanding of our team. They'll always prepare your medicines as quickly and safely as possible.
The pharmacy is closed on Saturdays, although a pharmacy service is available on the wards. There is no pharmacy service on Sundays.
At St Thomas' Hospital, there is also an adult inpatient and outpatient pharmacy. For more information, visit the Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust website.
