In September 2020 the NKF hosted a webinar, discussing home dialysis during Covid-19. During the webinar, it was revealed that patients who dialysed at home were at a substantially lower risk of contracting and dying of Covid-19, compared to people who dialysed in a hospital.
The NKF are now embarking on a national campaign to increase home dialysis in the UK. The campaign will focus on the disproportionate impact Covid-19 has had on patients who dialyse in a centre. In the report they are asking the kidney community to step-up and increase home dialysis provision, and they have seven recommendations for the NHS.
