For a patient to receive oxygen from Baywater Healthcare, a Healthcare Professional will need to complete a Home Oxygen Order Form (HOOF). The HOOF will indicate what type of oxygen therapy the patient needs based on an assessment of their condition and understanding of their lifestyle. Once the HOOF has been received, Baywater Healthcare will arrange for one of our Healthcare Technicians to deliver the oxygen equipment to the patient. The HOOF is valid until changed or cancelled by a GP or respiratory specialist.
If you do not have access to the HOOF please contact your local home oxygen assessment service, respiratory specialist service or CCG/LHB home oxygen lead. If you are unsure of who to contact in your locality please contact us and we can advise you.

Cylinder Retrieval Scheme/Orphaned Gas Cylinder: Baywater Healthcare and Air Products Medical Oxygen Cylinders only
We take the advice by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) extremely seriously and have a retrieval process for cylinders containing gas (or apparently empty) that are found.
If Baywater or Air Products medical oxygen cylinders containing gas or empty, that are not in use by a patient, are found then please phone: 01270 218050. Our healthcare helpline advisers will arrange for our retrieval services to collect the cylinder/s.
Cylinders containing gases (or which are apparently empty) can present considerable risk of fire, especially at civic amenity sites and metal recyclers. Cylinders must be disposed of through our retrieval scheme.
For non-Air Products/Baywater cylinders please call: 0800 0839652.
