I have been prescribed oxygen cylinder was told by my consultant, when I explained my difficulties with it,that I should get whatever suits my needs best and I mentioned poc to him and he agreed. He asked oxygen assessment to make an urgent appt for me, over a week no response from them, so rang them up was told nobody in my area has one and they dont prescribe them. On checking and research was told that Air Liquide do have these poc and people in the Preston area do have them. I told oxygen assessment that my consultant had agreed, to which the respiratory nurse replied he cannot authorise or prescribe oxygen, only they can. They are refusing to give it to me saying its not cost effective. I cannot buy privately as I receive a low income on pension credit. Appreciate any advice or help you can offer.
