Nephrology

Nephrology deals with chronic and acute renal failure, systemic disorders affecting the kidney and renal transplantation.

The treatment and care for patients across Lancashire and South Cumbria who have kidney problems are operated by Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. As part of this service, a satellite renal unit is run from Westmorland General Hospital providing haemodialysis services.

Some renal services can also be given in patients’ homes.
