About the Outpatient Pharmacy

The Outpatient Pharmacy is focussed on dispensing non-Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) and/or highly specialised medications that are difficult to obtain from a local community pharmacy to patients who have:

  • been seen at an outpatient clinic at Fiona Stanley Hospital, or

Many PBS medications are also available from a local community pharmacy closer to home.

If you are unsure where to get your medication, please phone 6152 4009 to speak with an outpatient pharmacy staff member who can assist you.
