Face to Face appointments

Our team is committed to provide best care possible and we know that seeing a healthcare professional face to face significantly improves and influence health assessments and advice given. This is also much safer option compared to those that are done over the phone. Therefore, our team is solely mobile and we see patient in person rather than trying to assess over the phone.

Home Triage

Home triage or in other words, a rapid face to face health assessment is a service where qualified nurse checks your child’s vital signs (pulse, oxygen, temperature, breathing rate, blood pressure) including chest, ears and throat and redirect you appropriately in a quick and timely manner- *only if your child needs further treatment or investigations.

Access this service if:

•You are not sure what services to access i.e A&E, urgent care, pharmacy, GP surgery
•You want your child to be seen urgently at home by a qualified healthcare professional
•You want to check your child’s basic observations (breathing rate, pulse, oxygen, temperature) for peace of mind
•You don’t want to take your child anywhere but rather looking for an advice how to look after them at home
•You want your child to be redirected appropriately
•You want your child to be seen face to face rather than a phone call consultation

Things we can do at home on triage:

•Chest auscultation
•Ears and throat check
•Urine check
•Blood sugar check
•ECG (print outs available)
•Nebulisation (Saline)
•Oxygen delivery and/or suction (in an emergency)
•Simple wound dressings (including burns)
•Limb injuries (pulled elbow, mallet finger, sprains etc.)
•Lacerations and cuts due to head injuries or anything else
•CPR (in emergency)

Venepuncture

We also offer venepuncture (bloods taking) for adults and children with a private nurse. If you purchased a blood test online and require a healthcare professional to do it, we are more than happy to assist you.

Please note, we will only take bloods if you have a full kit sent from the provider you ordered your blood test from. That includes: bottles, sterile kit, needles, vacuum tubes and so forth.

From time to time unexpected things happen. We might be unable to take bloods from children who:

– who are too distressed
– who are dehydrated and their veins collapsed
– your child’s veins are not visible on the surface of the skin
– have difficult veins to access

We offer full refund if a nurse we sent is unable to do the blood test for any above reasons.

We take safety precautions and infection control very seriously, our team will ensure everything is as sterile as possible in the comfort of your own home

Fees: £79.99
