Bed-Side Service Limited is not a medical institution. It operates within existing health facilities by providing health support services through qualified nurses, counseling experts and physiotherapists.

In-patients are attended to in hospitals/ clinics of their choice. However, the organization can advise on request by the patient- to- patient’s relative. For those people, however, who have no particular attachment, the organization intends to use Mulago most of the time since it is the National referral Hospital.

Counseling is done either in our offices, outside office, people’s homes or on-line depending on urgency.

The elderly are attended to either in their homes or our home (our homes are however yet to beset up).

Psychiatric nurses are provided either in hospital or at people’s homes.
