Abstract

Poster session - Costs for one stop dispensing and the use of patients’ own drugs (PODs) were compared with traditional dispensing costs - It was found that operating a one-stop dispensing scheme, with the use of PODs where applicable, could save an average of £4.35 per patient per day on ward A and £5.19 per patient per day on ward B - These saving would equate to annual savings of £24,000 on ward A and £34,000 on ward B - Additional savings can be made to the secondary care budget as no in-patient drugs would be wasted upon patient discharge - These additional savings are an average £25.19 per patient on ward A and £13.42 per patient on ward B
