There are five beds designated for patients receiving haemodialysis, four of which are located in the Renal High Dependency bay.Service users with Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), on dialysis therapies or who have previously received a kidney transplant requiring medical care will be nursed on this ward as well as those with general medical conditions.Patients on Cunliffe Ward can present with a variety of conditions with differing holistic and social needs. Such needs present a challenge for the nurses on the ward enabling them to develop their nursing skills to a high standard.
