Should you find that you are not able to complete a booking for any reason, you can ask for help at your local dialysis clinic, where a registered dialysis nurse can complete your booking for you. If you are someone who is making a booking for a patient, friend or loved one, you can create a profile on bookdialysis.com and complete bookings as the person of contact for several patients. This way, we are looking out for those in our community who need a bit of help to get to where they want to go.
