Kidney patients to benefit from first UK Renal Research Strategy

The BKPA are proud to have been part of the team which has produced the UK’s first comprehensive renal research strategy, which launches today. The strategy, two years in development, outlines aims and recommendations to improve the health and welfare of kidney patients through impactful kidney research.
It has been developed under the umbrella of the UK Kidney Research Consortium – which is comprised of a broad association of key bodies including leading kidney charities and professional associations, NHS England and clinical research networks from the National Institute for Health Research, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Paddy Tabor, Chief Executive of BKPA said: We hope this strategy will help us to better understand and tackle the causes of kidney disease for future prevention, to find new treatments and improve patient outcomes and quality of life. Not only are we aiming to drive greater investment and a collaborative approach, that will bring more benefits for kidney patients and their carers, but also firmly placing the patient voice and the multidisciplinary team, at the heart of the strategy to maximise outcomes that deliver better healthcare and prevention strategies.
