Renal (Nephrology)

Renal (Nephrology) is a medical specialty that supports patients suffering from a range of kidney diseases.

Within the South Eastern Trust, all renal care is provided by the Ulster Hospital Renal Unit, a purpose built unit that opened in 2003.

The South Eastern Trust provides the full range of renal services with the exception of transplantation, which takes place at Belfast City Hospital.

The multidisciplinary and inclusive approach to the running of this unit has created an environment geared to providing individualised, high quality care for all of our renal patients.

  • Renal Unit Arts Program

    Patients receiving dialysis at our Renal Unit have used a variety of activities and hobbies to pass the time when undergoing treatment.

    You can hear how two of our patients talk about their relationship with art and how they engage with it while receiving dialysis.
