North East Kidney Patients Association

Counselling & Support

Kidney Care UK have a closed Facebook Group that has over 7,000 members who are all affected by kidney disease in some way. The group is moderated and private so is a safe place to discuss any issues, you may have (medical, financial or other), with people in similar situations and experiences.  

If you’re a kidney patient struggling to make ends meet we can help you.
Due to the donations we have received, since Summer 2018 NEKPA have been in a position to allow members to apply for a grant to help with day to day living.  For further information, please email Annie Oldfield or ring her on 01325 721909

The North East Kidney Care Advocacy Officer is Linda Pickering who can also offer help with grant applications and liaise with Hospitals and Government agencies to help alleviate your difficulties.
