Support Groups

While we are unable to get together in person, we do meet up monthly via Zoom. Why not come along and join us for our next "coffee morning" where you'll meet other renal patients and carers to talk about anything & everything that comes up.


You are never on your own

With KKPA you have a team of people working for you to help in any way we can & if we can't help, we can certainly point you in the right direction.

What can I eat?

For kidney patients, what we can or cannot eat can be very confusing at times.
For information & advice you can contact the renal dietitians or find some inspiration from a range of kidney friendly recipe books
