New Oxygen Arrangements

New national arrangements for the supply of oxygen on the NHS came into force on 1st February 2006.

The provision of oxygen should by now be transferred to new regional suppliers. Oxygen will need to be ordered using a Home Oxygen Order Form (HOOF) rather than a prescription (FP10). Additionally, the patient will need to give consent for their details to be passed to the new suppliers on a Home Oxygen Consent Form (HOCF).

Further information is available for clinicians and patients here including helpline numbers and frequently asked questions.

Action: Clinicians need to be aware of this change and ensure they are using the correct paperwork to order oxygen therapy.
