Dr Graham Warwick

Consultant Nephrologist, University Hospitals of Leicester

I trained in general medicine and nephrology in Leicester and Glasgow before taking up my current post in 1994. I am a full time NHS clinician with special interests in preparation for renal replacement therapy, haemodialysis and end of life care in nephrology. I maintain my interest in research and am keen to improve the evidence base for nephrology practice by participating in multicentre clinical studies such as the BICARB study.
