Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust is a mental health and community trust that provides a wide and growing range of services across the boroughs of Bexley, Greenwich and Bromley. Due to the recent contract award from NHS England we will also be providing pharmacy services to the Kent and Medway prisons and the Dover Immigration Removal Centre.

The pharmacy department has a long history of innovation, with established prescribing guidelines, excellent relationships with medical staff, a strong culture of leading clinical audit and research projects and an excellent publication record. All of these attributes we wish to extend to the prison pharmacy services.

We believe in supporting our staff to develop to their full potential.
