Barts Health Renal Service is a leading specialist centre for the diagnosis and treatment of all forms of kidney disease. Our experts are here to share their knowledge with you.
We are one of the largest renal units in the country with an international reputation for our patient-centred treatments and a highly regarded kidney transplantation programme. As a nationally recognised and highly regarded specialist renal unit, we intend to support professionals who wish to develop their knowledge on Diabetic Kidney Disease through training and education programmes developed by our specialist team, in addition to offering exciting and informative conferences to those who wish to learn more about Diabetic Kidney disease and the Diabetic Kidney Care service.
We recently won an award from the HSJ for “acute sector innovation – runners up” and an internal “Collaboration award” for our innovative Virtual CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) service.
VCKD was developed in partnership with CEG, City and Hackney, Waltham Forest, Newham and Tower Hamlets Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to manage the epidemic of chronic kidney disease the population of East London faces. It is designed to improve the detection and management of CKD in the community, and to enable early review of patients who require specialist input. As a result, this has led to:
• Easier and more rapid access for patients to renal specialists through weekly e-clinics
• Quicker response times for our patients giving them a better experience
• Online referrals leading to faster bookings
• Avoid the need for hospital visits with 50% of referrals continuing to be cared for in primary care
• Avoid duplication of tests and facilitate between communication within primary and secondary care.
