Nutricia Homeward Service

Supporting you every step of the way

Nutricia Homeward provides support to patients receiving enteral nutrition, their families and their carers. This begins when the patient is ready to be discharged from hospital and continues throughout their time tube feeding at home. 

We want to support patients with a safe and speedy discharge from hospital and ensure that they can confidently manage tube feeding safely at home. Nutricia Homeward also help support healthcare professionals to ensure smooth patient discharge and reassurance that patients and carers have the support they need post discharge. To faciliate this, Nutricia Homeward has a dedicated team of coordinators and a nursing team available.
