If you are on dialysis, travelling will involve the need to plan and arrange for dialysis to take place whilst away. This is called dialysis away from base (DAFB) and will require some forward planning to put in place the necessary arrangements. DAFB is recognised as part of the package of care for all renal dialysis patients.
The National Kidney Federation’s website has a useful guide covering this and other things to think about when planning a trip. This guide is available by clicking the link below:
The NKF’s website also has a page providing details of UK hospitals which may provide holiday dialysis and useful links to other websites having holiday information for kidney patients. This page is available bv clicking on the link below:
