We encourage patients to go on holiday, and each unit has a holiday co-ordinator to help with arrangements and explain the process. We accept patients for holiday dialysis, but at times are restricted due to capacity issues.


Hospital transport is available to those who meet the criteria and parking is free on all sites for renal patients attending for dialysis. There are reserved spaces at Shrewsbury Hospital for dialysis patients use only.
