Mr K Summerhayes
I’d just like to thank you and your professional Dialysis Team for making my first ever cruise experience so wonderful. Starting from the time of booking, through the worst parts – waiting for the departure date to come around, right through until disembarkation.
The paperwork, though comprehensive was clear and easy for myself and my home clinic nurses to complete, and your advice on what to pack for the expectations of the cruise liner took that stress away.
It was good to meet everyone in your team and my compatriots for treatment so soon after embarkation and everything always felt like it was no problem and easily handled. The dialysis team was totally professional at all times, but that was also complimented by their personalities which meant time on dialysis went quite quickly chatting etc. The Nephrologist was extremely thorough at all times but was also quite amusing in her own way. The Charge Nurse was a wealth of experience and definitely the glue bonding the team together and always available for everyone at all times. The two nurses providing support were effective team players and knew their stuff.
Being an accompanied cruise meant there was always someone about if you wanted a chat even on the excellent inclusive shore trips. It was good to see the planning that went in to arranging dialysis sessions around these activities and the team were always looking to be flexible on start stop times.
I will do this again in the future, need to save up a bit first, but would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
