The unit comprises of a 20-bed, Nurse-led dialysis unit with a dedicated team of staff who look after approximately 80 patients during the week Monday - Saturday.
We also run multiple outpatient clinics to cover a wide range of renal related conditions and issues with visiting clinicians, speciality staff and nurses.

New patient clinic - Friday 9am - 12pm
This clinic will probably be the first time you meet the kidney team. Your GP or another hospital specialist will have made the referral to us and should have explained the reasons why.
We will review and make a detailed assessment to try and address the reason for referral.
You may want to bring a friend or relative - they are welcome. Please feel free to ask any questions or concerns when you come for your appointment. Your Doctor may ask you this at the start of the consultation. Hopefully, we should be able to provide you with some of the answers.
Please bring the following:
- A list of current medications
- Urine sample - about 10-20mls in a clean container
Some patients will have already received an appointment for an ultrasound scan on their kidneys previous to the first appointment.

Dialysis is a treatment that does some of the things done by healthy kidneys. It is needed when a patient's own kidneys can no longer take care of the body's needs.
A patient who has reached the stage of requiring dialysis will have been assessed by speciality clinicians as to the best treatment plan and decide how to proceed based on medical conditions and patient wishes.
