Cork Clinic Offers Healthcare and Holiday
Everyone loves a holiday. However, for millions of people suffering with kidney failure and dependent on dialysis three times a week, travel is limited to destinations where this life sustaining treatment is available and can be booked easily.
That is where Irish Holiday Dialysis comes in. Opened in 2017, it is the country’s only vacation clinic in the field. It is based in the small countryside village of Banteer, Cork – connected to the city by major transport links – in the homely surrounds of the 200-year-old Rowan Cottage.
Clients and their relatives can relax on the centre’s patio and enjoy the country garden complete with hens, a herb garden and raised vegetable beds. They can also avail of numerous scenic walks.
Staff are qualified and experienced renal dialysis nurses, registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland. Clients are assured of a stress free, friendly and personal service with treatment times flexible to suit the needs of the patient and travelling companions.
Dialysis is delivered according to the prescription provided from the client’s home clinic. This means patients can relax, knowing they will receive their regular treatment on advanced up to date equipment.
The cottage benefits from ample free parking. Clients can also enjoy free WiFi, a well-stocked fireside library and complimentary refreshments and home cooking.
Simply call or email Irish Holiday Dialysis to discuss your requirements and the clinic will begin the booking process. It is opened year-round by appointment. Booking usually requires a month’s notice.
Citizens of other EU countries can apply for a reimbursement of treatment costs, in their own country, under the European Union’s cross border healthcare directive.
Since its opening, Irish Holiday Dialysis has welcomed holidaymakers from USA, Canada, UK, Europe as well as Ireland. For many, it was the first time where travelling to Ireland was possible.
