The Pharmacy Department Medicines Information Centre provides a service for hospital staff, external health care professionals and the general public. The staff answer questions on medicine related matters, particularly those related to pregnancy and lactation and women's health.

|Calls received are often related to safety of medicine use in pregnancy and lactation, side effects, drug interactions, intravenous medicine administration and new medicines. The Centre however does not replace the important role of the community pharmacist or general practitioner as the primary contact for medicine information for the public.|
The Centre is staffed Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. An answering machine is in place for enquiries outside these times.
