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.
