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.

You can also email [email protected] for more information.

This consultant-led clinic is one of the 3 national centres for cystinosis in England. We recommend that all adults with cystinosis are seen at one of the centres. You can choose to be seen at the centre closest to you.

We see most adults with cystinosis once a year at this clinic, sometimes more often.

We aim to make sure all your health needs are being addressed. This can involve care and treatment:

  • closer to where you live
  • with other specialised services at our hospital

We supervise the prescription of your cystinosis medicines. We check levels of white cell cystine in your blood. This is important for dosing your medicines.

You'll also be seen at our eye clinic.

This clinic is by appointment only. You need a referral for an appointment at this clinic.

Your kidney doctor or nurse will refer you to this clinic if you need an arteriovenous (AV) fistula formed in your arm. This involves surgery to join one of your veins to an artery, usually at the wrist or elbow. It will allow more blood to flow through the vein. As a result, the vein grows larger and stronger. This makes repeated needle insertions for haemodialysis treatments easier.

You can find out more about what to expect on our having an arteriovenous (AV) fistula formed page.

It will take at least 6 to 8 weeks for the vein to be large enough to be used for dialysis. We'll see you again at the clinic about 4 to 6 weeks after your operation. You'll have a scan to check that the vein is ready to be used.

This clinic is led by our surgeons and nurse specialists.
