Renal or ‘Nephrology’ is a medical specialty concerned with the kidneys. The kidneys are vital organs that filter the bloodstream, clearing waste products and controlling the body’s level of water and chemicals.
Chronic kidney disease is a condition where a person has evidence of kidney damage or reduced kidney function. People with end-stage kidney disease require dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive.
Redland Hospital has a Haemodialysis Unit that delivers expert care for people with end stage kidney disease.
We also provide nephrology outpatient clinics with a specialist doctor on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in the hospital’s main medical outpatient area.
Parking spaces are available for dialysis patients who drive themselves, directly adjacent to the dialysis unit. Friends and relatives of patients are able to park in the general car park.
