UK's Poor Record in Treatment of Renal Failure
Lancet. 1984 Jul 7; 2(8393): 53.
In a press conference at the House of Commons, medical consultants admitted that their hope to elicit additional funds from the government for treatment of renal failure is tied to their ability to relate the inadequacy of treatment resources to lack of money. However, such a campaign makes physicians distant from renal treatment centers unwilling to refer candidates since they believe treatment may be denied. The consultants contend that the establishment of satellite units is the best solution. Expansion of facilities and improvement of the referral rate must go hand in hand. Other problems include the inability of centers to pay staff to operate more efficient dialysis equipment which can be utilized around the clock, and the high cost of the immunosuppressant drug, cyclosporin.
