Stores and distribution services Header Image

Pharmacy Stores is located at our Clatterbridge Hospital site and is the distribution hub for medicines to Arrowe Park and Clatterbridge Hospitals, Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, Wirral Hospice St John’s, Claire House and several primary care clinics in Wirral. It stores over 60,000 medicines and receives approximately 10,000 products each week.

Our pharmacy is one of the most automated in the UK with most products being stored in our large dispensing robot. This uses barcode technology to make sure the correct medicines are selected for use and can store over 50,000 items.

Pharmacy Stores is made up of a team of 20 staff, based at Clatterbridge and Arrowe Park Hospitals, who provide a distribution service as well visiting wards and departments to identify what stock medicines are required. Stock medicine orders are generated using a barcoding system and many medicines are dispensed automatically by the robot. Installation of the robot has meant the Pharmacy Stores team has been able to provide an enhanced service to hospital wards.

The distribution hub is supported by our Procurement Team, who help to ensure good stock control and that stock levels are appropriate. The team handles all the ordering, invoicing and contracts associated with procuring over £20 million of stock.
