Contrary to rumours circulating on social media, the Public Hospitals Authority advises the public that patients requiring dialysis services are not being newly charged for that service.
The only change that has been made is to bring the registration process in line with other services in the hospital. When patients require treatment, they are advised what the cost of the service is and asked if they are able to pay or make a contribution. Whatever their response, patients are still treated, irrespective of their financial circumstances.
The Public Hospitals Authority remains committed to promoting and supporting good health and wellness among the Bahamian people.
