Renal services at Arrowe Park Hospital
The Renal Unit, based on ward 31 at Arrowe Park Hospital, is the main site for renal patients within the catchment area of Wirral, Chester and Ellesmere Port. Occasionally we have patients from North Wales.
Ward 31 is a combined medical and renal unit.
The unit has 19 stations and 2 isolation rooms for patients requiring haemodialysis (dialysis of the blood to remove toxic substances) or haemodiafiltration (a renal replacement therapy similar to hemodialysis) plus 10 medical inpatient beds.
The dialysis unit is open from Monday to Saturday and has three sessions per day – in the morning, afternoon and twilight.
The medical beds function 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
