About the unit

The Royal Liverpool University Hospital (RLUH) is a tertiary referral centre for Nephrology and Renal Transplantation for the Merseyside region, covering some two million people. It provides care for all aspects of Nephrology including approximately 80 patients per year who are referred with acute Renal failure.
The main chronic Haemodialysis unit is situated on the 6th Floor of the Royal Liverpool Hospital. This is reached by taking the ‘ABC’ Lifts to the 6th Floor. The RLUH also provides care for the 3 satellite dialysis units (SDU’s) in the region, Broadgreen, Whiston and Warrington.

The Renal Replacement therapy programme includes approximately 450 haemodialysis (HD) patients, 100 peritoneal (PD) patients and 1000 Renal transplant recipients.

Approximately 77 Renal transplants are performed each year, meaning a constant steady increase in the numbers of our patients. There is also an active combined Pancreas and Renal transplant programme underway along with continuing series of trials, audits and research.
