Palliative Care Medication Service

The Palliative Care Medication Service has recently been launched in South Staffordshire. This service has been running in North Staffordshire for some time and provides vital, timely access to palliative care medication through community pharmacies.

The aim of the service is to allow rapid access to medicines commonly prescribed in palliative (or ‘End of Life’) care, to enable a greater percentage of patients to die in their own home, if they wish to.

The service works by establishing a network of pharmacies that will routinely hold stock of the main Pallitative Care medicine, so carers and other health care professionals should not experience delays in obtaining these medicines for the patients they care for.

There are a number of pharmacies across South Staffordshire who will now stock these palliative care medications at all times:

  • Diamorphine 5mg ampoules
  • Hyoscine butylbromide 20mg/mL ampoules
  • Haloperidol 5mg/mL ampoules
  • Midazolam 10mg/2mL ampoules
  • Cyclizine 50mg/1mL ampoules
  • Oxycodone 10mg/1mL ampoules
  • Water for injection 5mL ampoules

A list of the local pharmacies commissioned to provide the service is listed below. Please call the pharamcy first to confirm stocks are available.

Please note the supply of palliative care medicines is not limited to these pharmacies.
