ABOUT THE CLINIC

Our experienced clinic team welcomes you to DIAVERUM GROTTAGLIE. In our clinic we offer excellent medical service as well as a warm and friendly atmosphere to revitalise our patients both physically and emotionally.

DIAVERUM GROTTAGLIE was inaugurated in 2002 and features 14 dialysis reclining chairs. All stations are equipped with TV screens and free Wi-Fi. As an integral part of our service we offer free meals, coffee, and tea for our patients.

It is very easy to reach this dialysis centre by car. It is in the outskirts of the city, about 500 meters from the exit of the Taranto-Brindisi highway.

Both paid and free public parking is available

It is not convenient to reach the centre by public transport.

On the other hand, there is the possibility of using the transport service with driver, by booking after Diaverum has accepted the therapy period. The cost of the service is estimated by a cooperative or a voluntary association, affiliated with Diaverum.

Visit Apulia

Apulia: some people say it is the most beautiful part of Italy, rural and wildly romantic. Here you find Italy´s oldest olive trees, endless red poppy fields and tiny places in the middle of nowhere that you cannot get enough of.

Rural and wildly romantic

The “heel of Italy's boot," Apulia is a charming region that can be visited all year round and is suspended among nature, history, tradition, tastes and spirituality.

Apulia spreads lengthwise along the sea - marvellous beaches that will delight every traveller, from the sandy Taranto, to the rocky, boulder-encrusted Riviera of Otranto. At Santa Maria di Leuca the calm and crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea mix with those of the intense and azure Adriatic – a highlight not just for sea lovers. Nature is the protagonist again in the numerous parks and forest areas, salt pans and lakes in the hinterland of the region. Enjoy this diversified region and discover the picturesque landscape of Apulia.

"I am really grateful to the entire team at the clinic for how they are handling such a difficult situation! Covid has changed you only for the better. Thank you"
Busting myths! Disinformation has been circulating online regarding a number of risks of receiving the COVID-19 vaccination that are simply not true.

The internet and social media present us with a wealth of information as we have never experienced before, but we need to be vigilant and able to separate facts from “fake news” – especially during exceptional times such as the one we are experiencing with the global pandemic. Here are some of the myths around the COVID-19 vaccines and the facts that demonstrate they are not true.

Any vaccine, including COVID-19 vaccines, must pass robust safety tests before they are approved for use, and are then subsequently reassessed periodically once in use. Any approved vaccine in the countries we operate will have had the evidence of safety reviewed in detail by the regulatory authorities prior to being able to vaccinate any person. The COVID-19 vaccines have been tested in some of the largest clinical trials that have ever been performed with vaccines, involving tens of thousands of individuals.

It is not currently known if you have effective immunity from having had the disease, therefore you should receive the vaccination. However, you might be recommended to wait 90 days from diagnosis to be vaccinated. You can also be re-infected with the disease if you have had it already. Current evidence suggests natural immunity may not last very long.

COVID-19 vaccines will most commonly cause mild reactions or side effects. These reactions should go away on their own within a few days. These mild side effects include a low-grade fever, or pain or redness at the injection site.

Having the vaccination does not mean you cannot infect others although it should protect you from becoming serious unwell. There is also the possibility that you may be a silent spreader of the disease even though have been vaccinated. It is therefore important to continue with the COVID-19 steps put in place in your country and within Diaverum clinics and continue to follow the contingency plan.

No, there is no possibility whatsoever that the new RNA vaccines, like the ones developed by Pfizer and Moderna, can change the genes in your body.

It has been reported that COVID-19 Vaccines can cause infertility, due to the reaction in the body from COVID-19 vaccines. This is not true. There is no scientific rationale, or reasonable basis to believe that there is a link between the vaccination and infertility and miscarriage. In addition, no other virus or vaccination has been shown to cause infertility. There is some anecdotal evidence that pregnant women may be more likely to be hospitalised due to COVID-19 infection.

The individual is protected no matter how many people are vaccinated. It is true however that the more people who are vaccinated, the more vulnerable groups that cannot have the vaccine are protected.
