Medicines information

This service answers enquiries on all aspects of drug therapy and aims to support the safe, effective and efficient use of medicines.

The Medicines Information Service, based in Sutton, provides support for patients and healthcare staff who have any questions about medicines.

The service is staffed by pharmacists with clinical expertise, and particular skills in locating, assessing and interpreting information about medicines. You can contact the Medicines Information Service to check if any of the medicines you take will interfere with your cancer treatment.

It is important during every consultation with any doctor, nurse or pharmacist that you tell them about all the medicines you are taking, including medicines prescribed by your GP, complementary medicines, vitamins and supplements or any medicines which you may buy at your local supermarket or pharmacy.

Patients and staff can contact the Medicines Information Service via the Royal Marsden MacMillan Hotline on 0208 915 6899 (available 24 hours,7 days a week)
