The National Kidney Federation is unique because, although there are a large number of kidney charities, the NKF is the national kidney charity actually run by Kidney Patients for Kidney Patients.
Most Renal units, including the Royal Free Hospital’s, have a Kidney Patient Association (KPA), Currently there are 51 KPAs and they come together as the controlling Council of the National Kidney Federation, the KPAs are both the ears and the eyes of the NKF and its controlling force. Patients are the Officers of the NKF, the Executive Committee of the NKF and the workforce of the NKF.
The NKF has only two roles, campaigning for improvements to renal provision and treatment, and national patient support services.
