New Pharmacy Aseptic Suite

Designed by TODD Architects, the opening of the new £3.37m Aseptic Suite marks the second phase completion of the planned redevelopment programme at the Craigavon Area Hospital campus.

Located in front of the Macmillan Building, the two-storey state of the art unit will be used for preparing and dispensing highly specialised medications such as chemotherapy.

The new suite replaces the previous modular structure attached to the Pharmacy Department and houses a counselling room where the team can give confidential support and advice to cancer patients about their medication. It will be named the McWilliam Suite in memory of a highly respected pharmacy colleague, Gillian McWilliams, who sadly passed away from cancer.

    Framework

Our pharmacy, oncology and haematology teams work closely to ensure that we are continually improving services so that patients can receive the best possible care. Preparation of specialist medications like chemotherapy require great expertise, in particularly controlled environmental conditions. We are absolutely delighted that patients in the Mandeville Unit can receive their treatments much more quickly now that our new unit is situated close beside.
