When you are admitted to hospital, please bring all your medicines that you are taking, not just those prescribed by your GP.
In an emergency situation, if you forget, please see if a relative or friend can bring them in for you.
If this is a planned admission, make sure you have enough medicines for your stay and for when you are discharged home.
In hospital, your medicines will be stored securely and returned to you on discharge if still appropriate.
