All Welcome. Please do come and join us.
The group is open to all patients known to the Renal Services and their families/carers.
It is an opportunity for individuals to have a voice, be able to share experiences in a safe environment and build a network of support.
We had a great meeting at the Ditton Community Centre on 4th March 2020 with 19 people attending, including guests from the Dartford Kidney Patients Group interested in building up their own Support Network. A variety of topics were discussed & the feedback has been very positive.
Thank you to ALL who attended.
Hear what members have to say...
"these are very supportive events for patients & partners. Try attending just to see if it works for you"
"in the meetings you have a laugh, discuss various topics and learn new ideas"
"it helps you to make decisions about what treatment you will receive in the future with a positive attitude....Hearing from other people"
"when I leave meetings I feel very positive as it is easy to forget that there is always help available for whatever problem you may encounter on your journey"

The Caravans are CLOSED until further notice in the interest of Public Health & Safety.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept any pets in the caravans, as we have a duty of care to maintain high standards of hygiene at all times, as many visitors to the caravans have allergies, compromised immune systems and/or carry out dialysis during their stays.

About the Day
World Kidney Day is a global campaign aimed at raising awareness of the importance of our kidneys.
World Kidney Day comes back every year. All across the globe many hundred events take place from public screenings in Argentina to Zumba marathons in Malaysia. We do it all to create awareness. Awareness about preventive behaviors, awareness about risk factors, and awareness about how to live with a kidney disease. We do this because we want kidney health for all.
