This is a private nurse-led independent clinic accepting medically stable patients from UK or abroad.
Dialysis times can be flexible to suit your needs, as required depending on clinic`s availability as well.
4 Seasons Dialysis Norfolk Clinic has 4 HDF Fresenius machines and can accommodate up to 8 patients a day, dialysing only 4 patients at the time, either in the morning or afternoon.
Due to Covid-19 pandemic our unit is committed to follow the national guidelines on social distancing, so for the time being will are able to dialyse only 2 patients per session.
Our clinic is equipped with Fresenius Cordiax dialysis machines (HDF), and water treatment. We provide high-flux dialysers, and all the consumables required for your dialysis. There may be some items which you will be required to bring with you, but all of these details will be worked out by us and your dialysis nurses.
Once we have received your details from your home unit we will send you a letter confirming your dates and times, and also some directions to the clinic.
To ensure we have your up to date treatment regime:
- a dialysis prescription will be written by your doctor
- any medication will also be appropriately prescribed by your doctor
- all other relevant information will be obtained from your unit
For your safety fluid removal is limited to maximum 1 litre per hour up to a maximum of 3 litres per session.
Before your first dialysis session you will be asked to sign:
- consent to treatment form
- data protection form.
We require you to give your written consent to treatment. The consent form will be explained to you in more detail on your arrival.
We need to have certain medical and personal information about you and your next-of-kin, such as contact details, in order to carry out your dialysis. We will obtain all this information from your home unit via booking form. 4 Seasons Dialysis Norfolk is committed to ensuring any information we hold about you or your next-of-kin is held securely and responsibly, and according to the Data Protection Act (1998). The law states we are required to hold information about you and your dialysis treatment for eight years.
While on dialysis we will provide hot and cold drinks and biscuits.
