Hi My Mam. is due to go on a cruise shortly but has been advised she is not allowed to take NHS oxygen with her and needs to arrange her own supply for a cruise, could anyone please advise as been quoted £600 plus to hire and unable to get supply to our area......any advise would be most welcome.

Hi Shaun, if that lady on the cruise doesn't want it and it's still available could I put my hand up for your portable ? I gave severe emphysema and am on ambulatory oxygen :) I live in Hartlepool

Sure I've said all along that the first person to organise it can have it. As it happens I'll be going through Hartlepool tomorrow night at 5ish if you can be at the train station for then

Thank you so much, it really is appreciated. :)

Most Cruise Lines have a single supplier of oxygen and you must make arrangements with them. Is it a static concentrator, or ambulatory oxygen, or both? Which Cruise Line? And does she have travel insurance? She must, of course, declare all medical problems otherwise insurance wil be invalid.
