About the unit

The Dorset Renal Service is currently managed at Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester which provides a dialysis unit, renal ward and renal clinics. The service includes a satellite renal unit at the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospital where clincis are also held. Our patients also dialyse in Poole at a dialysis centre managed by Fresenius. The service expanded in April 2008 with the addition of clinics held at Yeovil Hospital and a transfer of Yeovil patients formally with Southmead to our care. A dialysis centre at Yeovil managed by B Braun also receives Dorset patients. The total number of patients in our care is 286 Hospital HD, 8 Home HD and 43 PD.
