Dialysis at Home

A woman from Doncaster who uses a dialysis machine at home to help keep her alive is calling for the NHS to cover the cost of her increasing electricity bills. Dana Holmes has chronic kidney disease and says her health has improved since using her dialysis machine at home rather than in hospital and is convinced it saves the NHS money. Dana gets £96 a year from the NHS to cover the electricity costs of using the machine but she says since energy prices have shot up, it's leaving her more than £20 a month out of pocket.
