The prescription assessment

Our pharmacists ensure that:
- the correct cancer treatment has been prescribed for you
- the dose of your medication is correct for your height, weight and blood test results
- interaction between your cancer treatment and other medications is limited

We check to make sure you receive your treatment at the right time.

Any uncommon uses or changes that are needed are discussed with your doctor before your medication is prepared.

Many cancer medications require extra review and paperwork, such as for clinical trials or for special funding. The pharmacy team needs a longer time to prepare these medications.

Your prescription is entered into our pharmacy computer system to ensure we have a complete record of your cancer medications.
