About Kidney Research UK
About This Shop
Kidney Research UK is the largest funder in the United Kingdom dedicated to supporting life-saving research into the treatment and prevention of kidney disease – a potentially fatal illness for which there is currently no cure.
The Charity has more than £10 million invested in research at any one time, awarding grants to doctors, nurses and researchers across the UK. We also award grants to kidney patients so that they can cope with the unexpected costs of their condition and campaigns for better patient access to renal services. Kidney disease is a devastating illness which can affect anyone of any age.
Every year around 50,000 people in the UK require some form of treatment for kidney failure, 3,000 die on dialysis, while a further 300 die waiting to receive a transplant. In all, more than three million people in the UK are at risk from kidney disease.
Kidney Research UK is dedicated to substantially reducing these numbers through funding research into kidney disease and by generating greater public awareness of kidney health. We desperately need your help in order to continue our vital work. Please visit: www.kidneyresearchuk.org or call: 0845 070 7601 to find out how you can support Kidney
