About the unit

Three dialysis units serve patients in the County of Gloucestershire. The Severn and Cotswold units are located in Gloucester, the Forest unit in Cinderford in the Forest of Dean. Dialysis is provided by B Braun Avitum.

The team includes five consultants, three registrars and dedicated ward, peritoneal, haemodialysis and specialist nurses. We have strong support from psychologists, renal dieticians, and a renal pharmacist. Renal histology, interventional radiology and vascular access procedures are performed in Gloucester and occasionally Cheltenham.


Research and special expertise

We are currently recruiting dialysis patients in to the PAVE and BISTRO trials. We are shortly to open to recruitment for the SIMPLIFIED trial. We are collecting data for the PIVOTAL trial but this trial is no longer open to recruitment.

We also recruit in to non-dialysis trials including STOP-ACEi, CareKnowDo, BiCARB and the RADAR database.
