Add Your Voice To Our Petition On Kidney Disease In Scotland –

The only way to drive change

“For too long chronic kidney disease has suffered from being a Cinderella condition, largely overlooked by policymakers, despite the devastating impact it can have on people’s lives,” says Bushra Riaz, Scotland policy lead for Kidney Research UK.  

“We’re calling on the Scottish Government to make kidney disease a clinical priority in Scotland as we believe this is the only way to ensure an action plan is implemented to drive forward positive action in prevention, early detection and treatment of CKD.

“We are currently writing our own action plan and believe the Scottish Government should adopt it  to ensure Scotland implements change to identify those at risk of CKD, diagnose CKD earlier, and prevent progression, achieving better health outcomes for people with CKD in Scotland.”
