“Laya healthcare’s YourCare@Home service allowed me to be discharged from hospital and be treated for wound dressings in the comfort of my own home. The service saved me so much time and effort – I didn’t have to travel to the hospital or queue for ages for a procedure that only took minutes. Laya’s nurses were fantastic, they came on specific days to my home so I had the certainty of knowing when I’d be treated. I’d highly recommend this service to other members.”
