During the week, up to sixteen outpatient clinics operate at any one time providing services for over 300,000 outpatients per year. The pharmacy works in partnership with Lloyds Pharmacy to dispense outpatient prescriptions. The prescriptions are dispensed from a separate retail outlet on the mezzanine floor.

Patients have shorter waiting times for their prescriptions whilst having access to the same high quality pharmacy advice as they had previously.
The major acute services are based within the Royal, together with regional and national specialist services in Nephrology, Renal Transplant, Renal Dialysis, Ophthalmology, Haematology, Bone Marrow Transplant and Vascular Surgery.
