2 Patients not known to have COVID‑19

2.1 Encourage patients, and their carers if needed, to use their own transport, and to travel alone to the dialysis unit when possible.

2.2 Minimise time in the waiting area by:

  • careful scheduling

  • encouraging patients not to arrive early

  • texting patients when you are ready to see them, so that they can wait outside, for example, in their car.
