Community Infusion & Venesection Units (CIVU)
Community infusion units are part of a health strategy for bringing healthcare to the community setting and nearer to the patient. The Infusion Unit model offers the opportunity to alleviate over-stretched hospital day wards and provide step down facilities for different patient groups.
TCP Group utilises our suite of services, such as pharmacy dispensing, cold chain logistics, track and trace technology and high quality nursing services, to provide a turnkey solution for the administration of specialty products in community infusion units.
As the pioneer of the community infusion unit model in Ireland, TCP Group currently operates a number of units nationally.
