Renal Registry

The UK Renal Registry is a resource for the development of patient care in renal disease. It provides a focus for the collection and analysis of standardised data relating to the incidence, clinical management and outcome of renal disease.

It was established by the Renal Association with support from the Department of Health, the British Association of Paediatric Nephrologists, and the British Transplant Society.

On the Renal Registry website you can find links to current and previous Renal Registry reports and slidesets, the Registry data portal and atlas, and information about the Registry itself.

We are the UK’s leading kidney research charity and we believe that everybody has a right to a life free of kidney disease. We are pioneers in our field.

Standardised Outcomes in Nephrology

The Renal Association is pleased to endorse SONG outcomes.

From their website:



"The Standardised Outcomes in Nephrology (SONG) initiative aims to establish a set of core outcomes and outcome measures across the spectrum of kidney disease for trials and other forms of research. The outcomes will be developed based on the shared priorities of patients, caregivers, clinicians, researchers, policy makers, and relevant stakeholders. This will help to ensure that research is reporting outcomes that are meaningful and relevant to patients with kidney disease, their family, and their clinicians; to support decisions about treatment."
