Safety & Quality
Safety and quality are a priority for Renal Services. As a company, we manage all aspects of clinical care, quality control and infection prevention at each of our clinics.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates our services and we are proud of the fact that we consistently achieve 100% compliance with the CQC requirements, year after year.
Excellence in Patient Care
All the Renal Services clinics provide dialysis patients with efficient, effective community-based services that offer:
• Friendly, professional care to meet individual needs;
• TVs, headphones and refreshments during treatment;
• The latest medical technology for specialist therapies;
• Clean, comfortable surroundings.
As an independent company, Renal Services is not limited to one manufacturer’s products, we can provide the most appropriate dialysis machines and latest therapeutic options to suit each patient’s needs.
By offering patients local dialysis units and holiday dialysis centres, we can also help them stay independent for longer.
Renal Services is at the forefront of innovation in the management of End Stage Renal Disease.
We are an early adopter of new technologies in dialysis and vascular access and we support the development of new therapies, medical devices and drugs that improve patient outcomes.
Meet our senior management team. They guide our company in it’s quest to achieve our values and goals for Renal Services’ patients and professional staff. All our management team members have considerable experience working within the dialysis industry in the UK, Europe and the US.
