‘One-stop’ Haematuria Clinic

If blood is found in a patients urine (haematuria), they may be referred to a ‘one-stop’ haematuria clinic at  Belfast City Hospital or Mater Hospital. At this kind of clinic, all the tests needed to make a diagnosis can often be carried out on the same day. Patients may be given instructions not to eat or drink anything for up to 8 hours before their appointment.
