Renal ward: latest update

more >>

Renal Ward – Great News!
The OUH has told us today that work on the new renal ward at the Churchill Hospital was completed on Friday 9th April. All that remains now is three weeks of inspections and commissioning activities ready for the first patients to move in on Saturday 8th May.

This is absolutely excellent news. It comes after more than twelve years campaigning by the SCKPA.

General information: Oxford press releases, local organisations offering help and the latest government advice.

SCKPA Contribution
SCKPA funded four patient monitors that were installed in the Transplant ward in December 2020.  Click here for information
