Passed by the NKF 12th July 2008, amended Jan 2020

Dialysis provision must be increased to cope with existing patient numbers and the growth in the number of patients predicted. Patients should be given a choice to receive their dialysis in hospital or at home. Haemodialysis patients should receive haemodialysis a minimum of three times per week.

All Dialysis Units should have spare capacity to ensure efficient operation.
