I know with my neighbour when she first went onto it she had a trial doing it at home. The problem was the storage needed for the stuff they bring out plus the place they lived in didn't have central heating so she had to start going to hospital.
I know at first she was going to 2 different hospitals, one for renal and the other one for something I can't remember now, it was a good few years ago.
They then decided one treatment was counter active to the other so just had her on dialysis at another hospital in another county, the nearest hospital didn't have their unit up and running when she needed it.
Lets hope they can get you in that new clinic as I know what a difference it will make being nearer to home, good luck.
