Strike action is taking place in June. We'll contact you directly if you or your child's appointment is affected.

There are rail strikes planned for June, which may affect your journey to our hospital and community centres. If you or your child has an appointment booked, please do all you can to attend. Plan your journey ahead and allow extra time.


Mum and daughter at pharmacy

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, open Monday-Friday, 10am-5.30pm. 

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.
