Home Hemodialysis

EDM number 1562 in 2017-19, proposed by Rosie Cooper on 04/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House notes there are currently over 63,000 people in the UK who have renal replacement therapy (RRT), a treatment which replaces nonendocrine kidney function in patients with renal failure; and over 28,000 receive dialysis every year, putting further pressure on an already overstretched NHS recognises that, according to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), up to 15 per cent of patients would opt for home hemodialysis and yet only 4.4 per cent of patients are on it; further recognises that despite representing just 0.1 per cent of the population, around 1.3 per cent of the NHS budget is spent on services for dialysis and transplantation patients, and in the 52 hospitals in England that offer dialysis services, up to half of patient transport service costs are accounted for by dialysis; acknowledges that the 2013 Home Dialysis Manifesto, supported by the All-Party Parliamentary Kidney Group, made recommendations to encourage an increase, however since then very little has changed; further acknowledges that both conventional and frequent and extended home hemodialysis were associated with significantly lower mortality risks, relative to other modalities, including peritoneal dialysis and in-center hemodialysis; calls on the Government to recognise the outstanding work of clinicians contributing towards improving the lives of countless people through offering home hemodialysis as a viable treatment; and urges the Government to encourage key clinicians and hospital boards to offer each choice of home hemodialysis to all kidney patients in the UK.
