The British Renal Society began as The British Renal Symposium in 1989 to promote formal dialogue between the many specialist groups supporting professionals involved in the care of patients with kidney disease. It soon became apparent that such a strong multi-professional input could be of major benefit to the future development of renal care, by exerting influence at a number of levels including the advancement of the evidence base, the commissioning process, and the formulation of policy. Since becoming the British Renal Society in 2001, the Society has grown substantially. It's core aims are:
- The promotion of effective patient-centred multi professional care to improve quality of life for people with kidney failure, their families and carers
- The advancement of education in the area of renal disease and replacement therapy in the UK
- The funding and support of multi-professional research into kidney disease and its management
We hope you find the BRS website useful and easy to use.

Paul Roome 1959 – 2016
It is with great sadness that the Department of Renal Medicine announce the death of Paul Roome, Chief Technician, Royal Derby Hospital. It is a measure of the esteem in which he was held that the impact of his premature passing has been felt so keenly by his friends and colleagues in Derby as well as across the renal community in the UK.
We offer our sincere condolences to his wife Sue and his two daughters, Kim and Beth. He left us far too early but that just puts into perspective how large his contribution and legacy are.
