MSP’s DELIGHT AT LATEST MOVES ON RENAL DIALYSIS PROVISION

Banff & Buchan SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed news that plans to expand the Renal Dialysis Unit at Peterhead Community Hospital have been lodged and approved.

Mr Stevenson – who has campaigned consistently for increased dialysis provision in Banff & Buchan – had previously extracted a specific commitment to the Peterhead expansion from NHS Grampian.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“This is excellent news indeed and I am pleased not only for those dialysis patients using Peterhead Hospital who will see the facility expanded but especially for those who are currently having to travel much further afield to receive their treatment in Aberdeen.

“I hope that the necessary work can be carried out as soon as possible in order to have this expanded facility up and running.

“It is important that people are able to receive medical treatment in their own locality, especially in renal dialysis cases as a long journey to and from Aberdeen takes a severe toll on patients who have to endure it.”
