Dialysis Centre Recommendation – Mesogeios, Crete

This is a personal recommendation for the Mesogeios Dialysis Centre, just south of Iraklio (Heraklion) on the lovely island of Crete.

I have dialysed at the Mesogeios Dialysis Centre on two separate holidays a total of 8 sessions. On every occasion, the service and attention has been excellent. There are doctors on site at all times, and every patient is checked on every session. I was allowed to needle myself, as I prefer, although they do use short tailed needles, which can be a bind when self caring, but a minor issue.
As soon as you are on, you are offered a cooked or cold snack (ham and cheese toastie is ubiquitous) (oh, and they just called it toast!), plus tea, coffee or cold drink, olives, bread and a sweet snack if you wish.

Every dialysis chair has it’s own TV with satellite TV – and on my very first session there, live Premiership football was on and Pompey were playing – bliss! (Pompey, Premiership? Hey ho!)

On the first holiday on Crete I took their offered taxi service to and from the Mesogeios centre as I was about 40 minutes away. But on my last visit I hired a car, so improved journey and wait times. When you first arrive you are warmly welcomed by Maria or one of the other excellent staff. Mesogeios also arrange travel and sightseeing trips, so you get the brief on this when you arrive.

The Mesogeios location is great, just South of Heraklion in the hills. The centre has large picture windows in the direction you face while dialysing. Everywhere is spotless and well presented boosting your confidence.

And for family, if they come with you, they can relax inside with drink and food, or go outside and swim in their very blue swimming pool.

I’d thoroughly recommend the Mesogeios Dialysis Centre for dialysis. It gets you out to the Mediterranean in a hot climate, and with great facilities for your special needs.

Enjoy your holiday. (My next blog entry will be about where I stayed in the hills above Hersonissos in a fabulous friendly family run ‘hotel’, Creta Blue Suites, in the village of Koutouloufari).

Hi, I'm Steve and have been a dialysis patient on some form of self-care or other since 1990. I've dialysed at home, abroad, in hospital, oh and had a transplant for 7 years. I work in the insurance industry for a City based business, but am very fortunate to be able to work from home 4 days a week. I hope, with my experiences, I can help others on dialysis or those facing dialysis in the future! It ain't so bad! Steve
