When you come for dialysis, you should bring:

  • Sheet, blanket and pillow for your comfort
  • Comfortable day clothes
  • Warm socks, sweatshirt or jumper in case you get cold during treatment
  • Book, magazine or an iPad/tablet with headphones
  • If you have a graft or fistula in your arm, make sure your sleeves are loose enough to roll up
  • If you have a catheter in your chest, wear a shirt that opens in the front
  • Any tablets you need to take during dialysis
  • Something to eat (if you need to)


You need a referral from your GP, specialist or health care provider to access this service. 

You can organise the referral once you have started training at HTC. You will then be given an appointment time to attend our Renal Clinic, usually every 2-3 months.
