Renal Vascular Access

Renal Vascular Access Team aims to look after all forms of vascular accesses for haemodialysis patients. The team ensures the pathway to fistula formation is as smooth as possible for our patients.

The team has recently started a one stop fistula assessment clinic on a Friday morning, in this clinic the patient will have education about his/ her fistula, a scan to assess the quality of the veins and a surgical review.


Sarah Kattenhorn has worked on the Renal Unit for 33 years and Claire Whitehill-Worked on the Renal unit for 20 years.
Funding for some of the equipment for this clinic was raised by a sky dive the team took part in April 2017. The team is always ready for the next challenge.
