Pharmacy services

We provide a wide range of pharmacy services to ensure you get the care you need in our hospitals.

Antimicrobial stewardship (AMS)

Life Healthcare pharmacists play a key role in leading AMS programmes in our hospitals. Antimicrobials are life-saving medications that are used to treat infections caused by micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites.

The overuse of antimicrobials over the past few decades (combined with the natural evolution of micro-organisms to find ways to become resistant to our available antimicrobials), has made resistance one of the biggest threats to global health today.

Antimicrobial stewardship programmes are important to ensure the appropriate use of antimicrobials, including antibiotics, in order to optimise the treatment of infections, reduce adverse events and reduce the rate at which micro-organisms are developing resistance to our existing antimicrobials.
