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.

BRS 2017 Conference
26-28 APRIL 2017
We are looking forward to the BRS 2017 Conference
to be held at the University of Nottingham in their newly built Sports Centre from 26-28 April
. There is plenty of accommodation on campus at reasonable rates, including The Orchard Hotel, so we hope that this will help to keep costs down.
Planning is already underway and I’m pleased to announce that Helen Hurst and James Burton have agreed to be our Programme Co-Chairs. We are planning an enhanced and innovative CPD stream as well as our usual emphasis on all aspects of multidisciplinary working. Sessions hosted by member organisations of the BRS will remain a central feature. In collaboration with the British Transplant Society we are planning a focus on improving access to renal transplantation.
The deadline for abstract submission will be 16 December
, so it’s not too early to start planning your abstracts!
For 2018 and 2019 we are working towards collaborating again with the Renal Association to hold further combined UK Kidney Week meetings and we look forward to seeing these meetings build on the strengths of previous combined meetings.
