10 Home dialysis provision

10.1 Continue and maintain current home dialysis provision (home haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis), and maintain adequate supplies and staffing support. Assess the resilience of care reliant on paid or unpaid carers, family and friends.

10.2 Think about whether it is possible to increase home dialysis provision for new incident patients.

10.3 Test for COVID‑19 in patients, carers and assistants (paid and unpaid) in the community using any form of home dialysis if they develop symptoms. Test paid assistants carrying out assisted automated peritoneal dialysis.
