About our Unit
Who We Work With
We work closely with the Diabetes, Cardiology, the Renal Transplant Service and various other Surgical teams.
Jack Pryor Unit
The Jack Pryor Unit is run by consultants and teams of nurses, and looks after renal patients who have elected for haemodialysis treatment. These patients may change to peritoneal dialysis therapy at some stage or receive a kidney transplant.
All patients living in the area covered by NNUH start their haemodialysis here on the Jack Pryor Unit, but when stable and where possible, patients will do haemodialyis at home because of the benefits this brings. For those who can not manage at home they will continue to dialyse at the Jack Pryor Unit.
Peritoneal Dialysis Unit
This service is for patients who have started the life-long treatment of renal replacement therapy. This department looks after renal patients who have chosen the therapy of peritoneal dialysis, and it has a dedicated team of a consultant and a team of nurses.
