Dialysis services provided by the Artificial Kidney Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital have been delayed due to a problem with the Unit’s reverse osmosis plant, which treats the water for dialysis procedures.
An internal investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the equipment malfunction and to return the reverse osmosis plant to good working condition.
The Board of Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital regrets the disruption to the dialysis service and the inconvenience to patients.
It however assures the public that every effort is being made to restore service to the Artificial Kidney Unit as soon as possible. (QEH)
