Abstract
The availability of evening dialysis is considered important if the patient with renal failure is to return to work. Dialysis units are categorized by location and whether or not dialysis services are offered in the evening. The location of dialysis patients is compared with these estimates to determine the percentage of patients having access to evening dialysis either in their own dialysis units or in a unit in their market area. A very large proportion of patients in the working age groups are likely to have access to evening dialysis both in their own market area and in their own dialysis unit.
