Clinics and wards used by the Nephrology department

The Nephrology department Renal Unit is the largest in the UK and provides a comprehensive diagnostic and treatment service for children with renal disorders.

Eagle Ward

Eagle Ward is a 13-bed inpatient ward and a 10-bed haemodialysis unit for babies, infants, children and young people with kidney problems. Patients include day case and inpatient admissions.

We work closely with the clinical nurse specialists in dialysis and transplantation, as well as having strong links with the urology unit.

We endeavour to provide family-centred care, believing that children thrive when both they and their families are empowered and supported by staff.

Children are managed by the multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, teachers and play specialists as well as other members of the psycho-social team.
