The Trust dispensary is based at Kingfisher House providing a service to Norfolk and Waveney, and a dispensing service is provided to the Trust by West Suffolk Hospital in Bury and Ipswich Hopsital in Ipswich.

We also provide medication supply, clinical services and emergency duty cover for our private and independent unit:
Our aim is to get the best use of medicines in mental health, helping those people who need them get the right drug, dose and duration. We do this by using our enthusiastic staff to support people wherever they are, and have tried hard to cover everything. This includes offering help and resources to GPs, Community Pharmacies, users, carers, volunteer groups and advocates.
The Pharmacy also provides medicines information to service users, carers, relatives, consultants, doctors and nurses through our medicines information telephone helpline, groups and various clinical activities.
With an award winning Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Database (1st of its kind), a clozapine clinic and a medicines dispensing machine (DORIS), the Hellesdon Pharmacy is truly unique.
