New Renal Ward Update - April 2021

The first patients should be moving into the renal ward on May 8th.
As part of the new fit-out works, the SCKPA has paid for four new remote cardiac monitors in the transplant section of the new ward. These will mean patients can be even more closely monitored after their transplants. Click here for the latest report with photos
