I would like to take this opportunity to express my opinion on the new dialysis unit at the Kincardine renal unit in Stonehaven. Although being in operation for only six months it is already operating very smoothly, Diane (ward SRN) and of the staff and very friendly and (I think) due to the fact that the ward is less hectic than other dialysis wards, the nurses are less stressed and have more time available to spend on the patients. Due to the proximity of the car park to the ward it is so much easier to get there and after a session of dialysis so much easier to get back,
In the last six months a cannot remember a time when I have been kept waiting to get on to the machine, and the staff are poised ready to take you off as soon as the machine bleeps. The chairs are comfortable and each patient has control over their own individual monitor, due to there being large floor to ceiling windows the ward enjoys lots of natural light and is very airy. I cannot speak highly enough of this facility and the nurses who run and organise it, I'm sure more patients would benefit if they had this level of care available.
