Barts Health Routine virtual Kidney referrals


Routine virtual Kidney referrals

As the pandemic accelerates, staff redeployments and clinical priorities mean that there will be significant delays c. 4-6 weeks in our response to enquiries to virtual Kidney Service.  We will keep these patients on our review list and as time allows we will review your patients and send you a clinical letter. Please do not contact the service to chase these. 

Urgent clinical kidney questions

 For URGENT CLINICAL KIDNEY QUESTIONS  - significant rise in creatinine, hyperkalaemia, nephrotic syndrome - you can call the renal consultant hot phone 02035945751 Mon - Fri 8.30 to 5pm 

Please do not use this line for  non-urgent matters  or chasing replies from our service.
