Renal Psychology

The Renal Clinical Psychology Service will continue to operate during the COVID-19 situation but via telephone consultation rather than face to face.  

Current patients will therefore be contacted by telephone at the time of their appointment. 
If you are a renal patient and would like a referral to Renal Clinical Psychology please either ask one of your renal clinicians to make a referral or contact 02476 968287 to leave a message for the Clinical Psychologist.  

Please note that due to pressures on the service we are operating a waiting list and there is currently a delay in taking on new referrals.  

For an urgent mental health crisis please contact your GP in the first instance.
