Patients´ Experience

What do dialysis patients think about holiday dialysis in Diaverum clinics? Read here an assortment of statements sent to us about their experiences:

  • I have been to several different units since I have started dialysis and have found Rotherham to be the most comfortable overall experience. What I liked: The friendly and professional staff, the spacious ward, comfortable adjustable seats, no waiting around before treatment, car parking free and next to unit.

  • From the very beginning the staff was welcoming, warm, made me feel relaxed and really went out of their way to help me in any way they could. I was picked up on time from my hotel by the bus driver and from where I was staying it was only a short distance away. The staff on the ward welcomed me very warmly, the doctor spoke good English which put me at ease and I was very happy with the treatment that I received here. I have no complaints and would definitely return to this clinic.

  • I have been to Sema Parc before and I am very pleased with the treatment. The medical staff is very friendly and professional. I will definitely come back!

  • This is very, very good. I am being very well looked after. It is actually much better here in Torremolinos than back home in England. The nurses check on you all the time and there is always a medical doctor present. Besides, the coffee here is fantastic! From the place where I stay to the clinic it is 15-20 minutes by car. It is really convenient. I don’t have to worry about the payment, the E111-form [European Health Insurance Card] takes care of that.

  • The Clinic is right at the door of the hotel. I normally take a taxi for my sessions and it takes 3-4 minutes to get there. Once there was a national strike and no taxis were to be found, so I actually chose to walk back to the hotel after the dialysis, that’s how close it is. I do not experience any language barrier. The doctors and Paulina [the Holiday Dialysis coordinator in Malaga] all speak English. Everybody is very nice, friendly and helpful. I am really in favour of Spain, not least since there are one or two doctors present at all times. I would like to give thanks for all the help I received while on dialysis.
