About us


UK Medicines Information is an NHS pharmacy based service. Its aim is to support the safe, effective and efficient use of medicines by the provision of evidence-based information and advice on their therapeutic use. The established Welsh Medicines Information Centre (WMIC) is based in the pharmacy department at the University Hospital of Wales. 


WMIC functions as a local medicines information service to the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board and supports the work of the local medicines information centres across Wales. The centre provides specialist advice on complementary medicines and drugs in porphyria and provides a medicines information role to the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacist group (NPPG).  WMIC also supports the local formulary service and works closely with Yellow Card Centre Wales.
