Advanced kidney care

We care for people with poor kidney function who need dialysis or a kidney transplant within the next few years.

Our consultant-led clinics monitor your kidney function. We help with any problems that can make it worse, such as high blood pressure.

Our specialist nurses offer dialysis education and help with decisions you need to make as your kidney function declines.

Our service also includes:

  • anaemia management for patients with long-term (chronic) kidney disease, including intravenous iron and erythropoietin (EPO)
  • education and preparation for a kidney transplant, including deceased and live donor transplants
  • preparation for a simultaneous kidney-pancreas transplants in people with diabetes and kidney failure

We provide a smooth transition onto haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, transplant and kidney supportive care.


If you need inpatient kidney care, you'll usually stay on Patience ward at Guy's Hospital. This is a specialist kidney ward.

If you need a kidney transplant, you'll usually stay on Richard Bright ward. This is a specialist ward for kidney transplants.

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
