Renal services team

A team of 16 consultant nephrologists and 5 transplant surgeons provide round-the-clock consultant cover for inpatient services.

The Private Patients Unit also has a dedicated team of Resident Medical Officers who are based on the 12th floor, who liaise with all consultants to provide comprehensive medical support to patients.

The consultants are supported by a large multi-disciplinary team of dialysis nurses, transplant nurse specialists, dieticians, clinical psychologists, renal pharmacists and administrative staff. All the nurses in the private patients unit have been recruited with a clinical background or interest in ITU/HDU or renal medicine. The renal team liaises closely with consultants in other specialties.
