Advice for people on dialysis

There is no need for alarm but people with kidney disease should be aware that, just like with the flu, they are at a higher risk of severe symptoms and complications from coronavirus.

Regarding outpatient clinic visits, please work with your local renal unit. Most units have put in place Telehealth or telephone consultations in place to help you avoid having to come to the hospital and congregate with other patients in the waiting room. Please ensure your unit has your most up-to-date contact details.
