The public is kindly asked to note that dialysis services provided by the hospital’s Artificial Kidney Unit have resumed.

The unit experienced a problem with its reverse osmosis plant which treats the water for dialysis procedures. However, following an internal investigation the cause of the equipment malfunction was determined the osmosis plant restored to good working order.

The Board of Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital regrets the temporary disruption to the dialysis service and consequent inconvenience to the patients of the Artificial Kidney Unit (AKU).  (PR)
