Kidney proposals agreed by Committees in Common
At a meeting on Thursday 18 November, South West London and Surrey Committees in Common (CiC) approved the proposal put forward by kidney clinicians from St Helier and St George’s hospitals to improve inpatient care for kidney patients.
The CiC agreed the proposal can be taken forward to the next stage, which would be a full decision making case. The CiC agreed the proposal alongside recommendations of further action to be taken by the NHS to address issues raised during public engagement, including travel and transport and continuity of care.
This is an important step for improving care for kidney patients and will see £80m of investment into the service, including a new unit at St George’s in Tooting.
