No home treatment option for most dialysis patients - icWales
Only a quarter of patients undergoing dialysis in Wales have access to a home-based treatment option.
But a survey by the organisation Dialysis Options suggest that up to 70% of patients in Wales want to have that option.
There are currently 2,075 kidney patients in Wales of which 1,222 are receiving some form of dialysis.
But only 299 patients are currently receiving peritoneal dialysis, which can be carried out at home. Most patients attend hospital for several hour periods up to three times a week.
