The Satellite Renal Unit at the Edginswell Business park, situated at Torquay, was opened in July 2010 to replace the previous unit at the site of the old Newton Abbot Hospital, which had its first patients in 1985.
The unit is a NHS satellite of Exeter and with 24 dialysis stations has the potential to treat up to 144 patients. This is in response to the increasing demand for renal replacement therapy in the South Devon area.
This unit provides haemodialysis treatment for patients residing in the Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust catchment area. The unit is open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday and provide morning, afternoon and twilight shifts.
