The Department of Renal Medicine is based in Dumfries Infirmary and serves the population of south west Scotland. The medical staffing consists of 2 Consultant Nephrologists, 1 part time consultant nephrologist and 2 Associate Specialists in Nephrology. There is a strong multi-disciplinary approach to care with excellent team working and many nurse led services. In addition to haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis nurses, the department is supported by a renal dietitian, pre-dialysis nurse, anaemia co-ordinator, palliative care nurse, transplant link nurse and vascular access nurse. Major developments of the renal service in Dumfries and Galloway have been completed in 2007. Specifically, we have upgraded the dialysis facility in Dumfries to 18 stations and opened a 4 station satellite unit in Stranraer and more recently a 3 station satellite unit in Kirkcudbright. Both developments have been to a very high standard, guaranteeing all patients and visitors to the region a �club class� experience during treatment.
