As part of the campaign. they have introduced a peer support service, which went live on 1st September 2021.
Kidney patients wanting help and advice when thinking about or starting home dialysis, can call the NKF’s Helpline free of charge on 0800 169 09 36 and then be paired up with one of the NKF’s many trained peer supporters based around the UK.
