About the unit

The Department of Renal Medicine undertakes the care of patients with kidney conditions of all kinds including acute renal failure, end stage renal failure and kidney transplants.

The Haemodialysis Unit is one of eight in the West Midlands. The catchment population is difficult to establish because of irregular referral patterns but probably represents one quarter of the West Midlands population of 5.2million.

There are seven Consultants in Renal Medicine, Drs Stephen John, Hugh Rayner, Mark Temple, Mark Thomas, Indy Dasgupta, Vijay Suresh and Jyoti Baharani. Peter Hewins is currently the Directorate Manager. Technical services are supervised by David Coffey.

Renal replacement therapy consists of haemodialysis (in the main hospital unit, the Solihull, Runcorn Road,and Castle Vale Satellite Unit, home haemodialysis and CAPD. Transplantation is carried out at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham and Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry. In total currently there are approximately 430 dialysis and 150 transplant patients under supervision.

As well as nursing staff in each clinical area, community nursing staff support patients on home haemodialysis and CAPD. There is also a pre-dialysis education service. The Department has its own Dieticians.

The unit is committed to providing the best quality patient care.

Number of haemodialysis patients = 130.
