We have 25 stations in our haemodialysis unit at the Lister, which is positioned next to the hospital’s main entrance. Our haemodialysis unit was extended recently to give patients more space, as well as more comfortable surroundings.
We also have 26 beds dedicated to inpatient nephrology (renal/kidney medicine) on level six in the Lister’s main tower block . This houses facilities for acute haemodialysis.
In 2014 we were proud to open our Renal Research Institute; it was named posthumously after patient patient Lee Haynes, whose family was instrumental in the fundraising effort required to develop the facility.
To give our patients more choice we have a home therapy unit (peritoneal dialysis and home haemodialysis), which is next to our haemodialysis unit on level three at the Lister. Also our haemodialysis patients can take part in the Shared Care programme, which encourages and enables patients to participate in their dialysis.
