Complex Healthcare

We can provide Registered Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Care Workers with the specific skills needed for individual complex care requirements.

Our Healthcare Services

We understand that living with a long-term condition and suffering from a lack of independence can be extremely challenging. You may fear that as your condition progresses, your only option will be to move in to a care facility. However our health services are specially designed to be flexible and adaptable to your ever changing needs, we can support you to remain living in your own home. Working closely with you and your family and any other healthcare professionals involved in your care we can provide Registered Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Care Workers with the specific skills needed to match your individual complex care requirements.

Our complex care is suitable for adults, children and young people with a range of on-going medical and continuing health care needs including:

  • End of life care
  • Palliative care
  • Acquired brain injuries
  • Learning Disabilities support
  • Physical Disabilities support

Our Nurses and Carers are able to support with a range of care requirements including, entreal/peg feeding, gastrostomy feeding, stoma care, nasophyaryngeal suctioning, oral suctioning, bowel management, oxygen therapy and tracheotomy care.

Rapid Response/Intermediate Care
Alongside our Complex Care Service we provide Rapid Response and Intermediate Care designed to prevent admission or to facilitate early discharge from hospital. This service is usually at short notice and as such our team are trained to react quickly in order to provide the care needed.

Our Team

Our complex care services are managed by our highly experienced Home Care Team and our Lead Nurse. Supporting the implementation of all complex care packages, our lead nurse completes clinical assessments and ensure that all of our clinical tasks are undertaken in accordance with internal policies and NMC guidelines.

A Transparent Charging Structure

Our working partnerships with Primary Care Trusts and Local Authorities have resulted in a charging structure that is transparent and offers value for money. Every client has an individually costed service and you can expect a full quotation, inclusive of all staffing related costs, before the commencement of any care package.
If you are eligible for funding for your care, including Direct Payments or Personal Budgets, we work closely with the Local Authority in order to provide the services required within the rate set. If you find you need to pay any ‘top up’ fees for additional support services these will be clearly outlined from the outset. More information on funding for care can be found here.
