See how parenteral nutrition is made

We are delighted to offer a unique experience to existing PINNT members in partnership with Baxter

As part of HAN week, Baxter is offering existing PINNT parenteral nutrition (TPN/HPN) members the opportunity to visit the Baxter Thetford Compounding unit. We hope this will raise awareness of how a bag of parenteral nutrition is made; how technical it is and who makes it!

We have two dates to offer:
  • Friday 14th September (morning session), 10am
  • Thursday 27th September (afternoon session), 1pm
Location: Baxter Healthcare Manufacturing - Thetford, Caxton Way, 
Thetford, Norfolk IP24 3SE 

Baxter has confirmed that you do not need to be one of their homecare patients to apply.

Places are very limited; they have a busy schedule to meet, lots of parenteral nutrition and IV fluids need to be made. We are working within what they have kindly made available for PINNT.
- The morning session will start at 10am with light refreshments provided (Tea/coffee), depart by 12.30pm
