About the unit

Alison Jepson is the Matron for the renal service working closely with Pam Towe. Helen Barlow is the unit manager. We provide a comprehensive Nephrology and Renal Failure service for the people of North Staffordshire, South Cheshire and beyond.
There is a well developed Home HD (35 to 40 patients) and Peritoneal Dialysis (80 to 100 patients) service.

Research and special expertise

We have an established track record of internationally recognised research in the areas of Peritoneal Dialysis, in particular Home Dialysis epidemiology, the characteristics of the peritoneal membrane, and body composition/fluid balance in renal failure patients. We also have clinical research interests in CKD-MBD and slowing progression in ADPCKD.

As a Teaching hospital affiliated to the Keele university Medical School we take a full part in the teaching and training of Medical Students and junior Doctors.
