A NEW £50million mental health hospital on Wearside is set to be the first of its kind in the country to feature a revolutionary medicine dispensary system.

Hopewood Park Hospital in Ryhope is the first mental health facility to install Omnicell automated medicines storage cabinets – which use finger print recognition technology – on its wards.

Bosses say that as well as improving safety, the cabinets will make administration of medicines to patients more efficient, allowing nurses to spend more time dealing with their patients.
