A Commitment To Private Practice In Renal Medicine


Fellow Renal Physicians

There are five Staff Renal Physicians.

If you are admitted to The Canberra Hospital, you will be admitted under the Renal Physician who is on-call at that time.

It is important that you ask the staff to phone your Physician at Access Nephrology so that the doctor is notified that you are admitted to The Canberra Hospital.

Other doctors that you will meet at The Canberra Hospital are Fellows in Renal Medicine, Advanced Trainee Registrars, Registrars, Residents

There are a number of “House Doctors” which make up the renal team. These are a cohesive and effective medical management group. They change frequently as they move through medical terms or to other hospitals.

Yuor Renal Physician at Access Nephrology will resume full medical care after you are discharged from The Canberra Hospital.  That is why it is important to make an appointment to see your doctor as soon as you are discharged.

Renal Unit Administrative Staff

Access Nephrology patients have little contact with the Renal Unit Administrative Staff.

Transplant Co-ordinators

Access Nephrology patients interact with the Royal North Shore Hospital Transplant Co-ordinator.

All the tests prior to transplantation will be organised through Access Nephrology and sent up to the Royal North Shore Hospital Renal Unit.

This is of particular importance, as the Transplant Co-ordinators liaise widely with other hospitals, particularly in matters concerning transplantation and renal education.

Dialysis Staff

The Canberra Hospital dialysis staff interact with our patients if they are admitted to The Canberra Hospital. When discharged your dialysis can resume at the private dialysis unit at Calvary John James Hospital.

In addition, Access Nephrology Physicians interact with  dialysis staff at Bega, Moruya, Goulburn, Cooma, Young and Wagga Hospital Dialysis Units.

You will meet other health professionals.
