Nutricia Homeward Tube Feeding Service
The Nutricia Homeward service helps patients and carers manage tube feeding at home safely and independently.
Our support begins when a patient is ready to be discharged from hospital and continues at home throughout the patient’s tube feeding journey.
The Nutricia Homeward Enteral Nurse Specialists have the skills to provide reassurance and support to people who tube feed. Their aim is to ensure that people are confident in managing tube feeding safely.
Our team of Nutricia Homeward Enteral Nurse Specialists provide training and clinical care at home for tube fed patients registered to the service.
Our team of 100 specialist nurses made over 31,000 visits in 2015*
Supportive patient co-ordinators
Patient co-ordinators make monthly care calls to patients to organise deliveries, check stock levels and liaise with patients' GPs to request monthly prescriptions.
Efficient, dedicated delivery
We work to provide a dedicated delivery service:
- Trained drivers deliver all supplies and equipment directly to patients’ homes
- Text Ahead sends a confirmation text the day before and a second text on the day of delivery to give patients more freedom and flexibility.
