Patient Information Committee produces over 30 new leaflets

The RA’s Patient Information Committee, run in partnership with Kidney Care UK, has gone from strength to strength, with 32 new patient information leaflets produced in the last 12 months.

The Committee, chaired by Dr Beccy Suckling, includes representation from a wide spectrum of health professionals including consultants, registrars, nurses, dieticians, psychologists and pharmacists. There is also strong representation from patients, via the Patient Editorial Board, which reviews all leaflets as well as helping to prioritise titles.

The Committee aims to produce a comprehensive suite of high quality patient information, endorsed by health professionals and patients, and available to all trusts in both electronic and printed formats.

The full set of current leaflets is available here.

To order printed copies for your unit please contact Kidney Care UK.
