Renal Unit staff working hard to reduce waiting times at County Hospital
Waiting times for patients requiring renal medicine are to be reduced thanks to a new 'twilight' shift at County Hospital.
County's Renal Unit currently sees 24 patients per day, with the new shifts set to increase that to 27, three times per week.
Maria Wilding, Senior Staff Nurse said: “I’m the newest member of the team and have worked at different dialysis units locally at other trusts but can say for me it’s a joy coming to work. I love the team we have, its gluing together, the equipment we have here and of course our patients. My heart is in renal. I love all the little details that comes with renal dialysis, there’s so much more to people just coming in for dialysis then going home. I love all the challenges that come with it."
"The new twilight sessions will increase gradually to 12 patients, taking the pressure off Royal Stoke for the benefit of local people."
