Hospital patient: We take care of each aspect of the patients requirements, to ensure the transition from hospital to home is managed efficiently and stress free.

A Point of Care nurse, will visit the referred patient while they are still in hospital to introduce themselves to the patient and our service. This ensures each patient and or carer, is equipped with all the information they require, to have their IV infusion at home.

Out- patient: Should a patient require an Infusion as an out- patient, we can manage IV infusions in one of our nationwide clinics or also in the home.

We also manage the following services:

    Peripheral catheter insertion

    Venepuncture/phlebotomy (Blood taking and testing)

•    Care of central catheter lines:  PICC, Perm-cath, Port-a-cath, Hickmann, (Flushing, Dressing, phlebotomy). Central lines are normally inserted in the hospital. At home we ensure the central catheter lines remain clinically clean and kept in perfect working condition.
