Our Services

Intravenous (IV) Therapy

Our Intravenous (IV) Therapy service support adults who need intravenous therapy in the community.

IV involves delivering medication directly into someone’s vein. Intravenous simply means ‘within vein’. IV Therapy is delivered into a vein as it is the fastest way to get it working in the body.

Having this therapy at home or in the community reduces the need for a long stay in hospital.

Our service is for adults who need intravenous therapy and we support a range of people with conditions.

Below are some of the conditions we can treat in the community:

  • Cellulitis (soft tissue and skin infections)
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Respiratory (breathing) problems
  • Urine infections
  • Spinal infections
  • Osteomyelitis (infections of the bone)
  • Removal of chemotherapy treatment
  • Anti-viral treatments
  • Cardiac (heart) related infections

Our community nurses deliver safe, effective and evidence based intravenous therapy nursing care to patients in a community setting.
