Home Oxygen Therapy Service

Service Changes for COVID-19
Across Cwm Taf Morgannwg, telephone consultations have commenced for all patients who are non-urgent. Patients who need urgent care are being seen following a telephone conversation so we can ensure they are not showing any COVID-19 symptoms
All patients have been contacted individually to ensure that their treatment plans have been optimised with rescue packs in place (where appropriate).  In addition, all patients have received a letter outlining advice regarding an ongoing management plan and contact details for support if needed.
For patients with queries within the Princess of Wales Hospital area, please contact our Patient Helpline number: 01656 752975.

The Home Oxygen Therapy Service is an assessment and follow-up service for patients who have been referred by either their GP or as a result of being in hospital.

This assessment service is for people who have been identified as having low oxygen levels in their blood.

This is a nurse-led service working closely with both GPs and respiratory teams within our hospitals to ensure the most appropriate care is given.
