Dialysis 'rationed'

From The Panel, 4:08 pm on 13 August 2018

Kiwi dialysis patients are having their treatments rationed because of immigrants needing emergency care.

Immigration New Zealand's chief medical officer says patients may get sicker if their dialysis sessions are reduced to twice a week.

We ask the panelists what they think should be done, if anything, about this.
