Renal Advisory Group

Chair: Dr Stephen Kardasz, Consultant Renal Physician

Due to a substantial reduction in funding for the Clinical Networks this year, we have been directed to focus on a reduced number of national priorities. Renal is not one of our 2016/17 priorities and as such we are unable to provide administrative or project management support to the Renal Advisory Group.

We want to take this opportunity to commend the work of this group between the period 2013 – 2016 and we have compiled a document of their achievements which will shortly be made available via this website. The group continues to meet and contacts can be provided if required.

The renal advisory group was originally formed and supported by NHS Kidney Care to work with healthcare professionals and commissioners to improve every aspect of kidney care for patients. Since April 2014 the group now sits within the Northern England Strategic Clinical Networks and works with healthcare professionals to understand and implement new guidelines, standards and national priorities and support patients and their carers to make more informed choices and live life to the full.

Priorities for the coming year are around:

  • Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • Acute Kidney Injury (AKI)
  • Waiting times for transplantation
