Medication is an important part of the treatment of most kidney conditions. The renal pharmacist and renal pharmacy technician work within the unit to provide information and advice to patients and healthcare staff about medications. Our pharmacy team offer advice to both outpatients and inpatients.
More on what we do
Kidney patients often take many medicines. The kidney is involved in the removal of some medications. Because of this, it is very important to ensure that our patients are on the right medication at the right dose. This includes medicines that you buy from a pharmacy and herbal medicines. Our pharmacist will make sure that all your medicines are working well together. Our pharmacy team can offer advice and support if you need help with your medication.
The main kidney unit is based in the Renal Day Case area (next to Clyst Ward). To contact Renal Day Case, call 01392 402514/2515.
