Oct 11 - Dialysis Unit Renamed In Honour Of Douglas Ferro

The Dialysis Unit in St Bernard’s Hospital has been renamed in honour of the late Douglas Ferro in recognition of his work to establish a renal care facility in Gibraltar. Mr Ferro was a Member and Vice President of the Gibraltar Dialysis Patients and Friends’ Association.

The Chief Minister said that, in society, it was often individuals who were the drivers of change.

Mr Picardo said: “Few individuals are as associated with the change that has resulted in the Dialysis Unit that is now a reality in Gibraltar than the late Mr Ferro.”

Douglas Ferro’s widow Dinah said that her late husband had dedicated his spare time to the Association.

The Minister for Health, Neil F Costa, said he was looking to expand the dialysis service from three to six times a week because it was now “almost at capacity point.”

Later, a cheque for £4,000 was presented to the Gibraltar Dialysis Patients and Friends’ Association from The Round Table. The money was raised during a racing night. Ms Ferro also presented a donation to the association on behalf of the Ferro family.

Sunil Chandiramani, the Chairperson of the Gibraltar Dialysis Patients and Friends' Association, said that the charity would use the funds to “improve and enhance” the service that the Dialysis Unit will provide in the future.
