The first dedicated renal ward at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Yorkhill, Glasgow opened in 1972, under the supervision of Dr Anna Murphy. This was an 8 bedded ward on the first floor of the hospital, ward 1c. The service soon outgrew the available space, and so the British Kidney Patient Association (BKPA) provided a large two floor Yorkon Building which was opened by HRH Princess of Wales in February 1983. This building became known as the Renal Day Unit and housed an area for assessing day patients, an out-patient clinic and a haemodialysis area, as well as parent and staff accommodation, a library and a seminar room.
