Homeward Nursing Team

Our nurses provide professional support and reassurance to over 27,500 tube fed patients, their families and carers across the UK.

Nutricia are registered with the CQC for the provision of an enteral tube service. Our nurses are an important link between each patient and their healthcare professionals and provide a reassuring expert clinical presence to both the patient and family.

Our patients' healthcare professionals can monitor all our nursing activity electronically

Safety and support

Nutricia Homeward Enteral Nurse Specialists support patients both in hospitals and at home. They provide tube feeding training and education in hospitals, and clinical care at home. Their presence and specialist knowledge help to smooth the transition, and give patients and carers the confidence and skills to manage tube feeding independently at home.

Our nursing teams are proud to make sure patients feel supported and safe when they start tube feeding independently. They also support healthcare professionals to look after their patients after discharge, monitoring changes and progress.

Expert support at home

Practical, expert help

Our nurses care for patients with compassion and expertise.

  • They help patients to manage tube feeding independently at home, which can provide a huge confidence boost to patients, families and carers
  • All Nutricia nurses are registered with the NMC and DBS checked. They work within robust clinical governance and evidence based policies
  • All nursing activity is logged electronically and can be monitored by patients’ healthcare professionals in real time.
  • Our nursing teams work to the latest standards of best practice, with regular training to provide high quality care.
  • Our out-of-hours advice line is answered by qualified nurses, providing the same excellent support as the regular daytime service.

Making life easier for tube-feeding patients

Our nursing service makes the whole experience of tube feeding at home easier for patients, their families and carers. We provide training for everyone involved in each patient's care. With our flexible at-home service, more patients can be cared for at home in the setting that’s right for them.

Having the right training and expertise on hand can help speed up appropriate discharge from hospital. Nutricia Homeward nurses also aim to prevent re-admissions. Every patient has an expert eye on them: someone who can resolve small issues, and stop them escalating unnecessarily
