About the Renal Association

The Renal Association is the professional body for United Kingdom nephrologists (renal physicians, or kidney doctors) and renal scientists in the UK.

From its foundation in 1950, the Renal Association has been active in promoting and disseminating research that may ultimately improve outcomes for patients with kidney disease. The Association has also taken a leading role in the education of clinicians and scientists interested in kidney disease. More recently, it has become more active in issues around training of doctors and the planning and development of clinical services. The Association has become increasingly aware of the importance of healthcare delivery by a multidisciplinary team and is affiliated with the British Renal Society, the umbrella organisation for healthcare and patient organisations with an interest in kidney disease.

In January 2010 The British Association of Paediatric Nephrology became a division of The Renal Association.

The objectives of the Association are:

  • To advance, collate and disseminate knowledge of renal structure and function
  • To seek means for the prevention and treatment of renal disorders
  • To deal with any matters concerning the welfare of patients with renal diseases and the organisation of services for their relief 

Legal Status The Renal Association is registered in England & Wales as Company 2229663, limited by guarantee and registered as charity number 800733.
