Frank Parsons demonstrates new rotating drum kidney to man in suit


Histories of individual UK renal units.

Twenty of these entries include substantial information from John Hopewell’s now lapsed website (renhist.co.uk) on the history of transplantion and early dialysis in the UK. Origin is attributed on individual pages.  More about him at the John Hopewell’s Early History of RRT page below as well as on the Royal Free history page.

Featured image is from Leeds, showing Frank Parsons demonstrating their new dialysis machine to Harold Himsworth, Director of the Medical Research Council, in 1956.
