Home IV service


People who need to have intravenous (IV) therapy for their antibiotics will be able to complete their treatment at home thanks to a new pilot scheme from NHS Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale.

IV therapy is when medication or fluids are administered directly into the vein through a cannula or catheter. The Community IV Therapy Service provides intravenous antibiotics to patients in their own home up to three times per day, helping to reduce the number of patients having to stay in hospital.
