To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to encourage greater uptake of home haemodialysis, in line with the NICE Guidelines, COVID-19 rapid guidelines: dialysis service delivery, published on 20 March 2020.

NHS England and NHS Improvement are undertaking a national Renal Transformation Programme starting later in 2021. As part of this, ways to incentivise home dialysis will be considered, which may include use of tariffs or other commissioning levers.

To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions, if any, they have had with the NHS about updating the National Tariff Payment for dialysis to encourage greater uptake of home haemodialysis therapies.

NHS England and NHS Improvement are undertaking a national Renal Transformation Programme starting later in 2021. As part of this, ways to incentivise home dialysis will be considered, which may include use of tariffs or other commissioning levers.

Lord Bethell
Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department of Health and Social Care)
15th Mar 2021
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will undertake a review to assess the benefits of home haemodialysis compared to in-centre dialysis for supporting dialysis patients safely to shield from COVID-19.

NHS England and NHS Improvement have advised that there are currently no plans to undertake such a review. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence COVID-19 rapid guideline: dialysis service delivery, sets out guidance for clinicians to maximise the safety of patients on dialysis during the pandemic, both at home and in dialysis units. It contains recommendations for providers to continue and maintain current home dialysis provision where possible and to consider the possibility of increasing provision for new incident patients. A copy of the guideline is attached.
