• EMPOWERING patients to make sure that their rights are respected and their views and wishes are heard at all times
• ASSISTING patient’s carers and families with self-advocacy and helping them to navigate the system
• REPRESENTING the views, wishes and needs of patients to decision makers at all levels

Advocacy provides
• Patient & Kidney Patient Association support and guidance services

• Research & Identification of patients issues to inform BKPA’s campaigning for change.
