South Down MP, Chris Hazzard has welcomed news that the Daisy Hill’s Renal Unit has been ranked as the top local Renal unit - and fourth from right across Britain and the North of Ireland in a recent patient experience survey.

With 26 haemodialsis stations used by nearly 100 patients per week, the Renal Unit at the Daisy Hill Hospital treats patients with kidney disease from across South Down, Armagh, Tyrone and parts of Louth and Monaghan.
