It should be recognised that children in Wales receive tertiary paediatric nephrology care from a number of centres based on geography. These include University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff; Alder Hey Children's Hospital, Liverpool; Birmingham Children's Hospital and Bristol Children's Hospital.
The guidelines below are produced under the auspices of the University Hospital of Wales and are aimed at paediatric departments in hospitals in South and West Wales who care for patients in conjunction with the unit in Cardiff. If patients are being cared for by other centres you will need to refer to their guidelines.
Guideline for management of anaemia
Guideline for management of haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS)
We are in the process of reviewing all our current guidelines and they will be updated as they become available.
If you have any comments about a specific guideline please e mail Dr Graham Smith at Graham.Smith3@wales.nhs.uk.
These guidelines have been produced in good faith by the author(s) reviewing available evidence/opinion. They were designed for use by paediatric nephrologists at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff for children under their care. They are neither policies nor protocols but are intended to serve only as guidelines. They are not intended to replace clinical judgment or dictate care of individual patients. Responsibility and decision-making (including checking drug doses) for a specific patient lie with the physician and staff caring for that particular patient.
