Ensuring appropriate prescribing of home oxygen, and achieving optimal therapy benefits, are the key objectives of our home oxygen assessment and review services, which we currently provide on behalf of seven NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups across England.
Our team of locally-based respiratory specialist nurses are responsible for assessing and regularly reviewing the oxygen therapy needs of all patients indicated as requiring oxygen for their condition, in accordance with BTS Home Oxygen Guidelines.
Bringing care closer to home, we run clinics in GP practices and health centres across the CCG community; visiting patients at home in accordance with clinical guidelines and as required.
We work closely with local referrers from both primary and secondary care to improve referral relevance and rates. We also liaise with the regional home oxygen service provider to ensure accurate oxygen patient registers.
