CANCER CARE AT HOME
Making a positive choice
We are one of the UK’s largest providers of private cancer therapies, working closely with clinicians, private medical insurers and patients for three decades. Our experience covers a wide range of specialties and treatment regimes, but above all we’re committed to delivering a one-to-one service that’s focused on patient-centric care. With coverage across the UK, our expert nurses provide safe, high quality cancer therapy from the comfort and convenience of your patients’ homes.
Our aim is to help your patients return to a sense of normality as soon as possible, so they’ll have a great nursing team to support them every step of the way. They’ll look after all aspects of your patients’ home treatments, from bespoke medical care to help with their general wellbeing and counselling. As well as improving patient choice, giving patients the option to have treatment at home can play a vital role in a capacity management strategy and can even allow you to expand your practice geographically.
Consultant-led care, with a fully integrated team
Throughout the whole process we liaise closely with you and your team to provide timely clinical assessments after every visit, so you can focus on providing the very best medical advice. At all times your dedicated patient liaison officer will make sure everything runs smoothly.
We make it easy from day one
We respond to private patient referrals in 24 hours and patients can expect to be on treatment within 1 week of a referral. We’ll also provide you with free iQemo software for easy referrals, uploading blood results and sending you a Clinical Evaluation Form (CEF) after each patient visit.
Smooth patient on-boarding
For new consultants and regular referrers, we will make a nurse available to attend your clinics, even if the clinics are held outside of business hours. Then once a patient is referred to us, we’ll reach out directly to them with a treatment pack and a call to introduce ourselves.
WHAT YOU GET
The patient benefits of having cancer treatment at home
Comfort and convenience
Cancer treatment can often cause fatigue and other significant side effects. Having treatment at home helps your patients live a more normal life without the tiring travel to and from hospitals.
Exceptional cancer care
Patients benefit from highly trained nurses with the ability to provide a clinical environment at home. Patients also have access to a wider range of drugs and treatment pathways.
A dedicated on-call service
We provide the reassurance of a 24-hour telephone advice service for private healthcare patients and their carers. The service is operated by experienced nurses providing round- the-clock support.
Reduced risk of cross infection
During cancer treatment when a patient’s immunity is weak, travelling to and from hospital or entering a hospital environment increases a patient’s risk of infection. Treatment at home helps lower that risk.
No VAT on drugs administered at home
As no VAT is applied on drugs administered at home, treatment is often significantly cheaper for your self-funded patients and the private healthcare companies.
Access to a clinical nurse specialist
Researchers found that having the support of a clinical nurse specialist was the biggest factor in providing a positive patient experience, which is why we make sure your patients have one straight away.
