The Lancashire & South Cumbria Kidney Patient Association is run for the benefit of Renal Patients their families and friends from the local area. Membership can be gained for a minimum £5 per annum, and is open to all who wish to join. At the AGM, it was decided that all new members wishing to join, can do so for free, up to their first renewal. Subsequently, all cheques should be made payable to L&SCKPA. The association has been responsible for many of the facilities within the units that patients often take for granted, including the purchase of a new dialysis machine at Kendal, mattresses at Clifton and assisting with the installation of broadband WiFi at several of the satellite units.  Regular monthly meetings at local watering holes enable patients, relatives and friends to discuss anything that may be weighing on their minds, or just to chat and have a drink with some like-minded associates. If the local meetings could be your cup of tea, complete and send off the form above.
