Subspeciality kidney clinics


Coronavirus: kidney and transplant update

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, please read our advice and information before attending the service.


We treat the majority of kidney conditions in our general nephrology clinics at Guy’s Hospital and in our Kidney Treatment Centres. However for some conditions care is best served by concentrating patients into subspecialty clinics. This is often where investigation and treatment is complex or requires close monitoring. By doing this you can be assured of cutting edge treatment delivered by our renowned expert teams.
