Our kidney's filter out the waste in our blood and eliminates it through urine. The kidney system can be affected by a range of disorders including hypertension (high blood pressure), kidney stones and kidney disease.
The health of our kidneys is vital to our everyday enjoyment of life. When they misfunction, or become damaged, it can have a real negative impact on the quality of life.
Urinary problems are uncomfortable and sometimes painful and embarrassing for people, so we understand your desire to have them treated quickly and thoroughly. If your doctor has concerns about your kidneys, we can help you with straightforward blood and urine tests as well as X-rays to check that they are working well. These tests can help to diagnose liver disease and liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, kidney infections, urinary tract infections and other diseases. We also provide effective, specialised treatment to help remove kidney stones and gallstones.
We have an expert team of renal consultants and specialised nursing staff, so you can be confident that you are in expert caring hands. You’ll be treated by a multi-disciplinary team focused on you. You can see the consultant and specialist you want, when you want, where you want from our network of 38 modern, well equipped hospitals and many clinics across the UK. Our consultants practise some of the latest advanced techniques and are all on the specialist register of the General Medical Council. Since 2007, we’ve invested £500 million in our 38 modern, well equipped hospitals and in training our medical staff to make sure we’re always delivering the best care we can. We're proud to have been recognised for achieving excellence in patient care, staff training, nursing practice and healthcare outcomes.
