Services at Darley Court
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.
Intermediate care services support the prevention of unnecessary admissions to hospital or long term care. Where a period of further assessment, rehabilitation, completion of treatment or recuperation is needed following discharge from hospital, patients can be supported either in their own home or in an intermediate care home. The main aim is to allow patients to remain at home or return home when safe to do so, and as soon as possible.
The Pharmacy Department supplies medicines to inpatients and outpatients and helps to make sure medicines are used safely, effectively and efficiently. We provide information and support to prescribers and also supply chemotherapy and other specially prepared medicines from our Aseptic Production Unit. We have teams based at the Royal Bolton Hospital, Bolton One and Darley Court.
