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
