Kidney disease may be genetic or caused by infection. If our kidneys do not work our blood may not be cleaned properly.Read More

The Kidney Fund was formed in 1989 following a meeting called by Dr Mike Bending to address the essential need for Kidney research. A group of renal patients, their friends and relatives came together at a house in Sutton and their vision was to raise sufficient funds to build a Renal Research Institute on the St Helier Hospital site. It then took 8 years to raise the £745,000 needed through charitable appeals, grant applications and many and varied fundraising efforts, and then in March 1998 a purpose built two story laboratory block was opened at the back of St Helier, under the name of The South West Thames Institute for Renal Research.Donate Now
