Procedures for Patients

From the Clinical Service Committee

In 2004 the Executive discussed the provision of patient information for procedures, to support the gaining of fully informed consent to these procedures. It is expected that the text will be used by renal units with the addition of any of their own local information. Produced by Stuart Rodger, Henry Brown, Alastair Douglas, John Feehally, Ali Bakran, John Woods, Colin Geddes and Iain Robertson.
