Plans for Mobile Kidney Dialysis Unit in Scottish Highlands

The population in the Scottish Highlands is spread over a large area of the country. Giving every local hospital a dialysis unit could be an expensive solution to treat a small number of people each week. So crisis-hit NHS Highland is planning to introduce a mobile kidney dialysis unit across the region to save patients from having to travel hundreds of miles a week to Inverness for treatment. This could help with its cash flow problems and a big financial black hole.

This will only help a small number of patients, but reduce costs and the inconvenience these patients face due to the long distances they have to travel and easy family life problems.
