Welcome to The Mermaid Dialysis Unit
Giving you the freedom to enjoy your best ever holiday on the beautiful unspoilt North Norfolk coast.
Wells-next-the-Sea is a beautiful and historic seaside resort with long sweeping beaches of golden sand bordered by grassy dunes and pine woodland. The gentle harbour with small boats provides an idyllic setting for rural life and this area is a favourite destination for bird watchers and those that enjoy the outdoor life.
We are a local renal dialysis unit which forms part of the Wells Community Hospital Trust a charity which seeks to provide clinics and service for people living in North West Norfolk. Income from holiday dialysis helps us to cross subsidise other services for local people. contact details here.
MERMAID DIALYSIS UNIT (Wells Community Hospital).
The Mermaid dialysis unit on the North Norfolk coast is now offering all year round holiday dialysis. The unit based at Wells-Next-The-Sea opened in 2011 and has seen its summer traffic increase dramatically.
Based on Holkham Estate and part of Wells Community Hospital Trust, the unit is considering increasing from three to four dialysis stations next year.
CEO Barry Dennis said: “We have concentrated on creating a reputation for summer holiday dialysis. However, many of our patients have said that they would like the opportunity of returning to North Norfolk in the winter.”
The New Manager of our dialysis unit is Philipa Johnston. She has replaced Kathryn Eggleton who has returned to New Zealand. Philipa has been a renal specialist since 1978, working in some of the larger NHS hospitals as senior sister. She has also implemented Home Dialysis in other countries including the African continent.
The Mermaid Dialysis Unit is registered with the Care Quality Commission. Full details at www.norfolkdialysis.com
