Welcome to the Lancashire & South Cumbria Kidney Patients Association Web-Site and thank you for taking the time to visit. This portal will enable you to browse through our many and varied pages at your leisure, we hope you find it both useful and informative. If you are not a member and live in the area covered by our Association, why not become a member? From as little as £5 a year (minimum donation) you can benefit from the many facilities we offer our members.


We have now become one of the many charities and organisations who can benefit from a website called Easy Fundraising .co.uk and can be found by clicking the link below. (Or by copying & pasting into your browser):-

To find more information and how you can help, please check out the full article on the FUNDRAISING/ RECYCLING PAGE.


This site has been produced for you by the L & SCKPA, a charitable Association, run by patients for patients. All patients, their friends and their relatives are welcome to join. We organise support groups, campaign for better renal facilities, publish information and newsletters, help the NHS where funds fall short and assist patients with their problems. To learn more about the Association, or to join, click on the links alongside. Some of these links point to the National Kidney Federation's own web-site and their information pages. The association would like to take this opportunity to thank the NKF for allowing us the use of this facility for our readers.


HOW DO I DONATE A KIDNEY?
If you would like to ask questions informally please use the messaging service below; this is designed to allow you to ask questions without committing yourself any further or even identifying yourself or the person you are thinking about donating to.

If you are ready to look into donating further, you will need to contact your local Living Donor Coordinator. They work at the local hospital with kidney services (see details below). In the North West this will be one of the 3 hospitals with kidney services – Preston Royal Infirmary, Central Manchester and Manchester Children’s Hospital (Manchester Royal Infirmary) and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust.

If your relative/friend or loved one lives away from the North West, we can help by contacting the right kidney centre for you.
