The James Paget Renal Unit comprises of a haemodialysis unit.
It is not a true satellite unit of Norwich because the unit resides in another Trust's general hospital. This means that the management of staff and budget and to some degree policies are outside the remit of the Norwich Hospital.
Renal consultants serving the James Paget University Hospital are Norwich based and travel to Gorleston for clinics.
The transplant nurse and PD nurses are Norwich based, but serve the James Paget Renal Unit.
The HD Unit has 18 stations. The unit also caters for holiday dialysis.
