Renal medicine and nephrology
We provide a broad service covering all aspects of general nephrology (the branch of medicine dealing with the study of the function and diseases of the kidney) including a service within the hospital for patients with acute or chronic kidney disease in conjunction with their other illnesses.
We liaise closely with other specialties including the critical care units to provide a co-ordinated service including renal replacement therapy (haemofiltration) when required.
We are currently looking to develop a wider range of service in Southampton for patients requiring long-term renal replacement, including inpatient dialysis.
Our renal consultants include Dr Kirsty Armstrong and Dr Tim Leach.
