Salford Royal Unveils New Facilities for Renal Patients
Patient Casper Madembo with Healthcare Assistant Roy Ward, Staff Nurse Jodie Pitcher and Support Workers Debbie Holgate and Kerry Wood

About the Service

Renal services at Salford Royal are based in the Hope Building.  The department supports pre-dialysis, dialysis and transplant patients and provides inpatient and outpatient services together with in-centre haemodialysis.  


Salford Royal acts as the "centre" for the West Sector of Greater Manchester; caring for patients from Oldham, Rochdale, Bury, Wigan and Bolton.  Manchester Royal Infirmary is the centre for the East Sector of the area.  The renal (kidney) Consultants provide outreach clinics at, or close to, all District General Hospitals in the West Sector in addition to their Salford Royal clinical commitments.


The haemodialysis unit has 29 maintenance haemodialysis stations managing 156 patients per week and there are four satellite dialysis units; two of these are run by Salford Royal's Kidney Department (Bolton and Wigan) and two are run by Fresenius Medical Care (Oldham and Rochdale).


Nursing teams supporting community peritoneal dialysis, home haemodialysis and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) management are also based at Salford Royal.


H3 ward provides 25-beds, three bays of 4 beds and 13 en-suite side-rooms for elective admissions and renal patients requiring investigations and mixed specialty beds; haemodialysis can be delivered at the bedside rather than moving the patient to the renal dialysis unit. There are also dedicated Renal High Dependency Unit (RHDU) beds. This infrastructure provides inpatient support to the West Sector of Greater Manchester.
