Urgent & Emergency Care

The Urgent and Emergency Care (U&E) setting encompasses hospital Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments, walk-in centres, non-emergency services, such as NHS 111, NHS 24, and Out of Hours (OHH) providers.

Pharmacists working in U&E support patients with medicines related issues and common ailments when GP surgeries and other healthcare services are unavailable.

You will provide patients with access to medicines in emergency situations, treat minor injuries, obtain information from patients about medicines they take (a medicine history), and will work close with and provide advice to other healthcare professionals.
