About Us

In recognition of the growing need for reliable, expert community Nursing services in the Colombo area, English Nursing Care Services was established in 2017.

As we developed our service, we were encouraged to add specialist Nursing services alongside Nursing care for the elderly.

An English management team developed our training program and methodology. This training was delivered to our Nurse Supervisors in March 2017 and our first Nurse Assistants commenced training at the end of April 2017.

Our UK supervising team was completed in May 2017 with the addition of a Sri Lankan based UK experienced Nurse and a further UK based Nurse with a Diploma in Tropical medicine.

The support of Dr KD Duminda, as a Visiting Consultant Physician, practising in Colombo has been key in adapting our services for the Sri Lankan setting and in identifying areas where we can add complementary Nursing services to the existing excellent facilities in Colombo.

We are passionate about developing a service that we can all be proud of and which serves those in need of home Nursing in Sri Lanka.

Meet Our Team

Our Services

When requested to provide our Nursing services, we will arrange a mutually convenient date to meet the client and their family members in order to conduct a comprehensive assessment of what services are required.

We will then be able to advise you on how we can meet your needs and document this in a Care Plan for our staff to follow. After receipt of signed documentation and payment we can commence our service of Nursing support.

We have a network of partners that may be called on to provide complementary services.

We see our practice as a team of skilled professionals able to develop bespoke packages of Nursing support to meet your needs.

Do contact us on 011 4500117 to discuss your specific needs, and we will be happy to help.

Quality Assurance

The quality of our service delivery and your satisfaction with our Nursing is at the heart of our company.

Our Initial care assessment will set out your Nursing preferences and requirements. This is then discussed with the Nursing team and the relevant staff are assigned to your care. Our assessment forms the basis of our detailed care delivery as well as our emergency response. It is reviewed with the client and family members six monthly and more often when required.

Your Nurse healthcheck conducted at the start of our care delivery is reviewed with our in house Consultant Physician for any unforeseen issues and your general health. It is then reviewed weekly during your Nurse visit, and details are recorded in your Client Medical Passport that is available for you to take on hospital visits to provide clinicians with important background information on your general health.

At English Nursing Care we ensure that all staff is ready to take on shifts at our clients houses (duty points). There are set procedures that our team needs to follow and is strictly overseen by our supervising team to ensure that our teams and client’s safety comes first. This includes ensuring that our staff is fit for duty and their family situation is all clear. We then have our team take an antigen test before they visit or are stationed at a client’s house. If the antigen test is clear the nursing/care staff is transported directly to their duty point in a sanitized and safe company trishaw. These expenses are all borne by English Nursing Care, to ensure our team and our clients are safe at all times.
At English Nursing Care when our staff first arrive at the stationed duty point; as they enter the premises they wash and change to fresh untouched uniform and wash the outfit they arrived in. Thereafter our team member puts on the required PPE and footwear to mitigate any risk of infection to both the patient and them. Please note we have educated our staff to always ensure they thoroughly re-sanitize and wear PPE when attending to all tasks related to personal care of client, this has always been a practice at English Nursing Care. If the premises have other members, our nursing/care staff limit contact and maintain safe social distancing, whilst wearing PPE. If they are to revisit patient for personal care, re-sanitization and PPE change is conducted to ensure full safety measures are in process.
Given the current COVID-19 climate; at English Nursing Care we wish to limit staff rotation and exposure i.e. 12 hour duties will not be functional. Our 24 hour facilities are in full operation, as staff are stationed at one location for an extended time period and exposure is limited to both the patient and our team member. Nevertheless, all services will be upheld at optimal quality; pill box will be refilled for extended periods etc. All non-essential supervisor visits are suspended, unless there is an emergency or an impending doctors visit the patient needs to attend.
As COVID-19 cases have risen significantly; we urge and request clients to minimize visitors at their homes. This is purely to ensure the client is given the best healthcare in a safe and comfortable environment. If there is a circumstance as such; we encourage personal to take a PCR test prior to their visit, undergo a thorough sanitization process, ensure they are wearing proper facemasks/ shields and all precautionary measures to ensure the client and our staff are safe at all times.
All clients diagnosed with COVID-19 will be administered as per the government health guidelines. As per their symptoms, they will be categorized either in level 1, 2 or 3 and taken to the intermediate care centers, COVID-19 designated divisional/base hospital of their choice or COVID-19 designated tertiary care hospital of their choice to ensure their full safety and recovery process is set in place.
At English Nursing Care to ensure optimal client safety we are minimizing contact with any and all personal. Our Nurse Supervisor will take an antigen test before visiting the premises of a client. If the antigen test is clear, they will be transported via fully sanitized and safe transportation to the duty point. A complete re-sanitization and PPE change will be performed before entering the client’s premises. The supervisor, will then perform all relevant tasks such as pill box refilling, for an extended time period of up to three weeks, thus, keeping our clients and staff safe. If there is an emergency situation our Nurse Supervisor will visit the given duty point performing all precautionary tasks as required.
With the current prevailing Covid-19 restrictions in the country this has been a challenge for our team. But at English Nursing Care we like to work around problems and have secured a roster of doctors and other medical professionals that work with us both online and offline. Should a client/patient need to consult a doctor we first identify if the consultation could be done via telephone, if so we proceed with an audio consultation, if not then we make the necessary arrangements in the safest method that the patient is not exposed. Our team of nurses also make every effort to ensure all medication required by the patient is full-filled.
