Renal Genetics Clinic

Clinical Leads: Dr J Sayer and Professor T Goodship, Consultant Nephrologists
This clinic allows consultant nephrologists with a special interest in renal genetics to see patients with inherited forms of kidney disease.
The focus of the clinic is to establish an accurate diagnosis and achieve optimal management of genetic and congenital causes of kidney disease. The clinic occurs once weekly and allows time for discussion regarding pattern of disease inheritance, implications for family members and genetic testing. We see patients with a wide range of inherited conditions, including the most common inherited kidney disease Adult Polycystic Kidney Disease, as well as very rare disorders.
Patients and sometimes family members are referred to the Clinical Genetics Service or Paediatric Nephrology Services if required.
