Nursing

1. Can I choose when my nurse visits?
Our nursing visits will be arranged to ensure you receive the correct treatment at the right time. We will liaise with you to ensure the time is as convenient as possible.

We work with your clinical team to ensure the correct training and support is in place. If you are not able to deliver the treatment yourself we can work with your family member or carer to train them to ensure they are able to provide you with your treatment.

3. Do I have a two hour window?
You have a 2 hour window when the nurse will visit between. We are a nationwide service and our nurses travel to be with you for your allocated time.
