Resources

Halton Healthcare encourages our patients to seek information and to take an active role in their healthcare.  Most website information is tailored for the general population and may not mirror the personal medication, diet or treatment plan that has been set with you and the Renal Team. Please do not adjust your treatment before speaking to one of your care providers. We are happy to discuss any questions or concerns our patients have or to review any literature found.
