Overview

The Great North Children’s Hospital Kidney Team is the only specialist team for the investigation, diagnosis, treatment, education, and ongoing support and care of children’s kidney diseases in the North of England.

Working with colleagues - such as children’s urologists and transplant surgeons - we provide a full range of treatment for children with kidney disease. This includes:

  • transplantation
  • haemodialysis
  • peritoneal dialysis.

We provide support to families ranging from antenatal diagnosis, to transition care into adulthood. We are one of 10 children’s kidney transplant centres in the country.
