Renal & Dialysis Services

The Pathology Laboratory in Huthwaite (between Derby and Nottingham) was established in June 2003 to provide a high quality but competitive service to the largest independent provider of dialysis care in the UK. The laboratory is now part of SYNLAB Specialist Services and provides a centralised pathology service for a number of satellite dialysis clinics across England, following the guidelines of the UK Renal Association.

The service provided includes the routine monitoring of dialysis patients in the areas of clinical chemistry, general haematology and hepatitis screening. The laboratory has a versatile complement of analytical platforms and will undertake to introduce new assays to meet the needs of the service users.
