Services at Breightmet Health Centre

Audiovestibular Medicine for Adults

The Long Term Conditions Practitioner Service aims to improve the quality of life for patients diagnosed with a long term condition.  We work with people who have been struggling to manage their health needs in relation to their life, assisting people to navigate through the health and social care systems in partnership with all those involved in a person’s care.  This gives confidence and empowerment to enable people to self-care and prevent crisis interventions.

Bolton IV Therapy Team

Bolton Intravenous (IV) Therapy Team is based at Darley Court and provides a range of intravenous care treatments (administering substances through a vein), either in patients’ own homes or at Breightmet Health Centre. The types of treatments we are able to provide include: blood transfusions, chemotherapy, IV antibiotics, venesection and iron infusions. Patients value our service greatly as it allows them to stay at home, avoiding frequent visits or admissions to hospital.

Children’s Community Nursing

The Children’s Community Nursing teams are highly specialist nurses who provide care at home or as close to home as possible. We work to ensure children do not need to stay in hospital, where care in the community supports early hospital discharge and prevention of attendance or readmission.

Children’s Healthy Weight Team

Every parent wants their child to be healthy and happy. At the Children’s Healthy Weight Team we know how difficult it can be to manage this, especially with our busy lifestyles when we are surrounded by unhealthy food options and pastimes that encourage children to sit in front of a screen. We have one goal….to help children who are above a healthy weight, and their families, to become fitter, healthier and happier.  We delight in the work we do to encourage children to be as passionate as we are about eating well, moving more and feeling good about themselves.

District Nursing

The district nursing service is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week service providing nursing care to patients who are housebound, in the patient’s usual place of residence. The nursing teams are based in local health centres, and work closely with GPs and a wide variety of other services and agencies. The team can coordinate care, which includes discharge planning for patients who have been in hospital and need care from the district nursing team when transferred home.

Food and Health Team

Would you like some inspiration on how to plan, shop for, prepare and cook healthy balanced meals for you and the whole family? Would you benefit from practical advice on healthy eating, portion sizes and label reading as well as ideas on how to increase you and your family’s willingness to try and enjoy food?

Then come to us, the Food and Health Team, a fun and friendly team, with the knowledge, skills and passion to help you eat well and feel great :)

Long Term Conditions

Long term conditions practitioners aim to improve the quality of life for patients with a long term condition such as heart failure or lung disease.  We work with people who have been struggling to cope in daily life due to their health problems, enabling them to care for themselves more effectively. 

Neurological Long Term Conditions

The service offers one stop access to patients who have a diagnosed neurological condition. Within the team we have consultants, specialist nurses in Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and epilepsy and a therapy team consisting of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics and neuropsychology. We aim to treat, educate and offer support and advice in a timely, professional manner which will help people live as independently as possible with a long-term neurological condition.

Nutrition and Dietetics for Children

The children’s dietetic service is a small friendly team who offer high quality individual and group interventions. We support children and young people who have nutritional problems such as food allergy, nutritional deficiencies, concerns with weight management, and who want to be fitter, healthier and happier. We do this through a variety of programmes to ultimately reduce their future risk of diet-related ill health.

Speech and Language Therapy for Children

The Speech and Language Therapy Service will assess, diagnose and develop an individualised programme of care to maximise the communication potential of the children and young people referred to them and under their care.  The work involves direct contact with children and young people with communication difficulties as well as their carers and other key people in their lives. Therapists also support children and young people with swallowing, eating and drinking difficulties.

Tissue Viability

The tissue viability service specialises in assessing, diagnosing and treating a variety of complex wounds. The team is committed to delivering a highly specialised service that is available across the Bolton area. The tissue service is also a teaching centre that is accessible to health professionals in Bolton.
