About Us

Fresenius Medical Care is the largest independent provider of dialysis care and renal services in the UK.

Our Clinics Division, Fresenius Medical Care Renal Services Ltd, provides high quality care for NHS patients, close to where they live, through our network of over 50 dialysis clinics.

We have worked in partnership with the NHS for over 20 years, where clinical care is shared between NHS nephrologists at the main hospital renal unit and our nurse-led dialysis clinics. This collaborative approach ensures:

  • High quality care in state-of-the-art facilities
  • Additional capacity for patients closer to home
  • Efficiency savings for the NHS
  • Transfer of operating risks

Our Products Division, Fresenius Medical Care (UK) Ltd,  distributes innovative products and equipment, including machines, dialysers and all the required consumables for kidney patients in hospital, dialysis clinics or at home. We also provide a range of product support services.

As an integrated company we are in the unique position of being able to offer products, services and support along the entire dialysis chain. This has enabled us to help NHS Trusts deliver efficiency savings. With our NephroCare Value System, we combine continuous improvement and patient centredness with comprehensive management instruments to create and develop holistic dialysis treatments. Consistency across our clinic network reduces unwarranted variation and geographical coverage helps to relieve hospital capacity and reduce pressure on hospital services. Through our manufacture and supply of Products to the NHS, we can assist NHS Providers with the products and therapies to empower patient choice and deliver joined-up care at the right time in the optimal care setting across the patient pathway. We feel proud and privileged to be able to use the experience we gain through our vertical integration, to continuously improve what we do and deliver improved health outcomes at every therapy stage.
