A sep­a­rate Out-Pa­tient De­part­ment (OPD) for kid­ney trans­plant pa­tients has be­gun at the Jigme Dorji Wangchuck Na­tional Re­fer­ral Hos­pi­tal in Thim­phu.

The kid­ney trans­plant pa­tients can now have ac­cess to con­sul­ta­tion with the only nephrol­o­gist at the hos­pi­tal, Dr Min­jur Dorji, ev­ery Satur­day at Cham­ber 17 at the old hos­pi­tal build­ing.

The OPD was started be­cause of the in­creas­ing num­ber of kid­ney trans­plant re­cip­i­ents in the coun­try. There are about 130 in­di­vid­u­als who had un­der­gone kid­ney trans­plant in the coun­try.

Bhutan Kid­ney Foun­da­tion co­or­di­nated a meet­ing be­tween JDWNRH man­age­ment and med­i­cal ex­perts with the kid­ney trans­plant re­cip­i­ents at the Tarayana Hall on June 26, where the re­cip­i­ents had pro­posed for a sep­a­rate OPD dur­ing the meet­ing.
