Our Renal Tsar, Dr Donal O'Donoghue, has asked me if I know of anyone on haeomodialysis in the UK who has been denied home dialysis - on either suitability or cost/nursing resources grounds.

If so, would you be willing for your experience to be mentioned in an article he's writing, with either your name or initials, and the name of your hospital and PCT/FT? If you don't want the Trust to be named that's fine. Email: tessharris - at-
