About the unit

We opened in April 2002 and we are predominantly a nurse led unit. We are now open to 72 patients.
Modern Matron - Mrs.Sheila Price
Senior Sister - Miss.Emma Burgin
Deputy Sister - Miss.Laura Stevens

We provide a full haemodialysis service for patients who live in and around Loughborough.
We are open Monday to Saturday 7am - 11pm.

As patient numbers allow, we are able to offer space for a limited number of holiday patients throughout the year.

PHILOSOPHY
"We, as a team, actively encourage patient choice and involvement to form a trusting and supporting partnership in care."
"We aim to achieve this through patient empowerment, health education and listening."


Research and special expertise

We are at presentworking towards a research project looking at "Thirst on Dialysis".This project is being undertaken by Staff Nurse Sue McGauley with thesupport of the maufacturers of Biotene. They will be looking at howpatients relieve this unpleasant side effect of renal failure and coping strategies.
