DIALYSIS CENTRES VACANCY NUMBERS ARE DWINDLING. WILL THERE BE ENOUGH SPACE FOR NEW PATIENTS?

Dear A.S.S. Editor

I read with alarm at the news that between the three charity dialysis organisations that are currently running dialysis centres for kidney patients, there are only 100 places left available. Question is, are there more patients who needs dialysis nowadays, or the dialysis centres did not cater for the increasing demands for such centres?

The Ministry of Health has said that the 100 places is enough for now to last till June or July. That is just three months away! Isn't anybody raising a red flag at this sooner? While more dialysis centres will be opened by the end of the year, was this poor planning that have led to this low number of places left in the next few months?

Better these places are really enough to cater for the patients till end of the year. If not, some heads should roll.
