Below is the full press release
RENAL DIALYSIS UNIT NOT CLOSED DOWN
The Hospital’s attention has been drawn to reports in sections of the media that the Renal Dialysis Unit has been closed down indefinitely.
We wish to state that the Renal Dialysis Unit has not been closed down as reported.
The inpatient and emergency section is in full operation. However, the outpatient section experienced a delay in the delivery of some consumables and special arrangement has been made for their delivery in the coming days.
While we await the delivery of these consumables, alternative arrangement has been made for the dialysis of patients in the outpatient section.
Managers of the Unit are on standby to address any challenges which will confront patients
We wish to thank patients and staff of the Unit for their co-operation.
