“Pharmacy teams in hospitals make a significant contribution to patients by delivering effective pharmaceutical care and ensuring patients use their medicines in an optimal way. However, there is variability in the consistency of this care outside of normal working hours. The limited availability of hospital pharmacy services, particularly at weekends, has been reported as resulting in:
• an increase in missed doses
• prescription errors
• lack of medicines reconciliation
• delayed discharge due to waiting for discharge medication

This conference focuses on the topical issue of delivering seven day services in hospital pharmacy following the recent report by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. The conference will look at how the national quality standards for seven day services can be delivered in pharmacy and the role of the hospital pharmacy service in delivering a seven day NHS.
