We are passionately committed to helping people with kidney problems lead fuller and more active lives. Our nephrologists work closely with endocrinologists, cardiologists, pharmacists, nurses, dietiticans and health educators, to provide quality care for those of you who have been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and other kidney problems.
When arranging an appointment, we will ensure that you see one of our expert consultants. Our experienced care team will look after you every step of the way – from giving advice at your ﬁrst consultation, through to offering ongoing support after your treatment.
Our Nephrology Clinic is not a self-referral service. Your Primary Care physician will make a referral for you if he/she believes you need an expert to evaluate the condition of your kidneys.
You will be invited to the clinic, usually two to four weeks after your referral from Primary Care.
When you arrive at the Nephrology Clinic, you will be checked in. Within five minutes, a nurse will carry out an initial clinical screening. Wait times are around 15-20 minutes, and your appointment will usually last around 20 to 30 minutes.
Depending on your condition, you may need to take part in further imaging procedures and/or laboratory tests. All procedures and any follow-up appointments can be arranged by the nephrology team at the front desk. If you have further diagnostic and/or intervention procedures, our nursing staff will explain how to prepare, and answer any questions about your next steps.
