About our renal service
We provide a comprehensive service for patients with all forms of acute and chronic kidney disease (except dialysis and transplantation) and offer a treatment pathway to patients at all stages of kidney disease. We work closely with the Royal Free Hospital renal services, and patients that require treatment for stage 5 CKD are referred onwards for treatment at the Tottenham Hale and Kidney Diabetes Centre. Our renal services team provide a range of outpatient services and there is a ward (T8) dedicated to treat kidney diseases.
As kidney disease is often caused by, or associated with, other disease conditions, multi-disciplinary clinics are also run with the diabetes, rheumatology, HIV, urology, elderly care, and cardiology teams, in order to optimise the care of the more complex patients.
Conditions we treat
All forms of acute and chronic kidney disease (except dialysis or transplantation).
Each of the four consultants provides a weekly general nephrology clinic. Areas of particular clinical interest include diabetic kidney disease, resistant hypertension and cardio-renal syndromes, renal disease associated with rheumatological and haematological conditions, metabolic kidney stone disease, HIV, and pregnancy-related manifestations of kidney disease.
How to prepare for your visit
When attending the renal clinic for the first time, you will very likely be seen face-to-face. As well as having blood pressure and body weight measurements, you may also have one or more of the following:
- Urine test
- Blood test
- Kidney scan
Please remember to bring in any medications that you may be taking.
At subsequent visits, you may also have a telephone/video consultation. This will be facilitated if you are able to have a blood pressure and bodyweight measurement in advance of the consultation.
Refer a patient
Referrals to this service can be made via a GP or hospital doctor. We regret that patients cannot be seen without an appointment. All referrals are assessed and in some cases, rapid advice and guidance is given without patients having to attend an appointment.
All GP referrals need to be requested via NHS e-Referral Service (eRS)
Advice and Guidance requests can be sent via NHS e-Referral Service (eRS)
The referral criteria to this service are aligned with those set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence clinical guideline CG182.
