This qualitative study aimed to explore home haemodialysis and in-centre haemodialysis patients' experience, to illuminate barriers and facilitators in the uptake and maintenance of home haemodialysis. Thirty-two semi-structured interviews with patients receiving home haemodialysis or in-centre haemodialysis were analysed using framework analysis. Four themes emerged: 'perceptions of self'; 'impact of haemodialysis on family'; 'perceived advantages and disadvantages of home haemodialysis and in-centre haemodialysis' and 'practical issues and negotiating haemodialysis'. The lived experience of home haemodialysis was in contrast to the lived experience of in-centre haemodialysis and to the anticipated experience of home haemodialysis, highlighting patient factors that contributed to under-usage of home haemodialysis.
