  • Biography

    Suren is the clinical lead for the Haemodialysis Service. He returned to Newcastle on his appointment as a Consultant Nephrologist in 2004 after completing undergraduate and early postgraduate training in Manchester and higher specialist training on the West Yorkshire rotation.

    During his time in specialty training, he spent 3 years as the Saturo Nakamoto Hemodialysis Research Fellow at the Cleveland Clinic, USA, where NIH-sponsored work on renal support for acute kidney injury (AKI) formed the basis of his doctoral thesis. He maintains an interest in both AKI and haemodialysis through an active research programme and has authored a range of original articles and textbook chapters in both fields (http://www.ncl.ac.uk/icm/people/profile/surenkanagasundaram.html#research ) He was an expert advisor to the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) for their 2009 report into AKI care, co-authored the 2011 UK Renal Association clinical practice guideline for AKI and is the lead author for the next version. Other professional interests include a commitment to issues of sustainability within healthcare.

    He and the team were honoured to be nominated for the Trust’s quarterly Personal Touch Award (in Q3, 2015) and subsequently win the annual team award for 2016 (http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/patient-guides/comments-suggestions-or-complaints_personal-touch-awards.aspx)
