In fact, the pharmacy lies within Northwick Park Hospital in London. Furthermore, this is one of the largest installations in the UK.  Indeed the robot pharmacy ward refurbishment was a very complex project which we developed in a multi disciplinary approach, taking on board perspectives from all specialists involved.

The Brief

Robot Pharmacy Ward Refurbishment Complete

Firstly, ACA developed the design of an existing hospital pharmacy to improve the functionality of the space. Secondly, we adapted the internal layout to cater for a pharmacy robot!  Specifically, a ROWA robot system is an automated medication storage and dispensing system in hospital pharmacies.

Above all, the BD Rowa Vmax robot can scan, store and distribute thousands of packs of medication every week.  Furthermore, it enables the pharmacy team to supply medicines quickly and reduce the risk of medicine picking errors.

The Completed Design

The dispensary room layout improves the functionality and movement throughout the space for patients and staff.  Furthermore, the overall internal design covers two storeys.  So, the lower level includes a robot storage room, fridge and lobby.  In addition, the upper floor level includes a reception, a consultation room, a dispensary room and offices
