Medications used to treat cancer are clinically evaluated and dispensed at BC Cancer – Surrey by a team of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacy assistants. These medications, which are provided free of charge, will either be administered at BC Cancer – Surrey or will be given to you to take at home. Pharmacists will provide you with detailed verbal and written information about the drugs you will take at home. They will also review your other medications to ensure they are safe to take with the cancer treatment. Our pharmacists are available to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have about your cancer medications.
Prescriptions for medications for supportive care, such as antinauseants or pain control medications, must be taken to and paid for at a community pharmacy. For more information, see Drug Funding
