I have now dialysed at the small unit located in Wells Community Hospital, named the Mermaid Centre. Friendly team there, and a spotlessly clean unit – well done! At the time I was there, there was a problem with the water supply and the impact on the individual ROs supporting each of the 3 Fresenius 4008S.
The water supply kept failing and so the dialysate conductivity kept dropping. This was blamed on the handover period and appeared to be a regular occurrence. I might suggest this is not suitable, and should be attended to by the local techs. Other than that, good session, nice unit, very handy location and easy to park.
Verdict: I’ll go again when I next have a break on the North Norfolk Coast.
NOTE: it’s a shame my local dialysis unit had got my details and prescription wrong – so lesson learned here, check what the holiday unit has been given for personal details to ensure you get the correct dialyser, dialysate and settings.
If you are planning a trip to the area, I’d recommend this unit.
