Minister for Health and Medical Services, Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete has confirmed the installation of new dialysis equipment at the Nadera Dialysis Centre as the centre continues to take shape.

“We have reached a stage where all 10 dialysis machines and chairs have been installed and plumbing has thoroughly been looked into,”

“Also, two Reverse Osmosis systems have also been installed by the National Kidney Research and Treatment Centre (NKRTC) while programming of the machines are in-progress together with Functional Test,” he said.

The centre will be fully operational once all installation setups meet the standard guidelines from the European company where the machines were manufactured from.

“We are quite pleased with the update because we have a senior biomedical technician engineer who is recognised by that European company and is ensuring that the initial Centre setup is in line with the operational standards,” Dr Waqainabete said.

“The way dialysis is filtered is among some of the adjustments made to ensure that the machines are properly set up.”

Dr Waqainabete reiterated on the importance of following certain stringent requirements that needed to be met for future partnerships with the machines manufacturing company.

“Being a dialysis centre, in every phase of instalment and work, we had to make sure that it was the correct way of installing all equipment,” he said.

The centre will soon be open and operational once all the machines have been set up and thoroughly tested for dialysis patients around the country.
