Dr Satish Jayawardene trained in London and completed specialist training in the South Thames Renal Programme.
He joined King’s in 2005 and is the clinical lead for acute kidney injury (AKI). He is responsible for the Bromley Dialysis Unit as well as jointly managing the General Nephrology clinics at King’s (Mondays). He is at the Princess Royal University Hospital every Friday providing a ward consult service for renal patients and jointly managing the weekly general nephrology clinic. He is also Training Programme Director for the South London Renal Training Programme.
He has set up a one stop post-AKI clinic to identify patients needing long term nephrology clinic follow-up, raise awareness of kidney disease and educate patients on preventing chronic kidney disease (CKD). He jointly supervises our acute kidney injury (AKI) specialist nursing team who deliver ward consults and clinic follow-ups to AKI patients within the Trust.
His research interests include the early identification of those patients at risk of developing AKI.
He jointly edited the ABC of Kidney Disease (2nd edn, D Goldsmith, SA Jayawardene and P Ackland ed. Oxford: Blackwell Publishing, 2013). It is a practical guide to the most common renal diseases to help non-renal healthcare professionals screen, identify, treat and refer renal patients appropriately and to provide the best possible care.
