To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the minimum and maximum prevalent rate of provision of home dialysis is across renal centres in England; and what assessment he has made of the causes of variation in home provision between areas.
All renal units in England are achieving 10% or more compliance in providing home therapies. The highest rate of home dialysis supported by a single renal unit is 34%.
Whilst no formal assessment of this variation has been made, home therapies for dialysis remain a priority within the Renal Services Transformation Programme with the aim of all units providing home therapies to at least 20% of patients. NHS England and NHS Improvement continue to work to ensure all units meet this standard.
