Last Thursday, I was one of three renal patients who attended the onsite opening of the B. Braun Wellstone Renal Care Centre in Downs, Port Laoise. The Renal Care Centre is where I receive my thrice-weekly dialysis sessions. Leading up to the opening, as a result of Covid-19, the B. Braun team invited some of the patients to speak to them about what it means to be a patient in this new facility.

After the B. Braun team had put together the video for the opening, they realised that they had much more footage that had not been used. Therefore, they produced a second video highlighting patient stories. I am proud that, alongside my husband, Andrew, I was one of those patients interviewed.

Watch the videos now.
