The Harrison Wing has its own pharmacy to advise on HIV medication prescribed in the clinic. 

Our specialist HIV pharmacists offer advice and information on issues relating to HIV medication such as possible side-effects, interactions with other drugs and how to make sure you take your medication regularly as prescribed.

All Harrison Wing prescriptions need to be clinically screened and signed by the specialist HIV pharmacist before it is taken to the outpatient pharmacy for collection.
