Domiciliary Oxygen Service
By now you should be aware of the establishment of a national Home Oxygen Service by Health Facilities Scotland. The service aims firstly to ensure patients are receiving the most appropriate therapy, and secondly to ensure best value for money. Under this service, oxygen supplies will be provided directly to patients through Dolby Vivisol.
In NHS Fife, the handover took place over the month of September 2012, with all patients handed over by October 2012.
Standard Operating Procedure – (June 17)
- Oxygen Concentrator Supply to a patient at home by a NHS General Practitioner during the in-hours period
