Obstetric Renal Clinic (for Salford patients)
This is a multi-disciplinary clinic where we see women who have
renal disease of hypertension which is difficult to control. The
women are all reviewed by a Consultant Obstetrician and a
Consultant Renal Physician, who plan their management according to
the clinical assessment of the patient. Some patients attend before
pregnancy to receive advice on the risks of pregnancy and to review
medications before they conceive. There is input from the
Transplant Nurse when required.
The clinic has been running for over 12 years and has received
good feedback from the women who attend. Most women attending for
the clinic come between 10.30 am-11.00 am so that when they are
reviewed by the doctors, there are renal function test results from
that day that the doctors can review. This means that the
management can be discussed that day and the woman does not need to
be contacted the following day to confirm or change her management.
Women are scanned monthly from 28 weeks.
Women who are seen in the clinic during their pregnancy do not
attend their normal renal clinic so that visits are not duplicated.
Once the baby is delivered, the care transfers back to the renal
clinic closest to the woman's home once the woman is stable.
When women are referred from other hospitals, they are assessed
to see if they need to deliver in Saint Mary's. Some only attend
the clinic antenatally and return to their original hospital for
delivery if their renal disease is mild and stable.
