This new organisation brings together, into one membership organisation, the 71-year history of the Renal Association, the work of the UK Renal Registry, and the multi-professional focus of the British Renal Society and its affiliates.
After two years of engagement and discussions between the Renal Association and the British Renal Society, an overwhelming majority of the renal community support this merger to form the UK Kidney Association. The transition reflects the evolving needs of the wider community and the centrality of multi-professional working in kidney care.
The UK Kidney Association will support the whole multi-professional team in the delivery of kidney care, through education, training, research, quality improvement, service and workforce development.
