Dialysis Away From Base (DAFB) - Kidney Care UK

Dialysis Away From Base (DAFB)

Everyone with kidney disease should be able to live life to the full. Holidays and respite breaks can help to reduce stress and improve mental well being. However if you or your child need dialysis, there are certain things to consider when organising a holiday or any kind of travelling. This leaflet provides advice on having dialysis away from your normal location, whether that’s at home or at a different hospital.
