About the MRI KPA

Established in 1985,  Manchester Royal Infirmary Kidney Patients’ Association (MRI KPA) exists to promote the welfare of persons receiving treatment at MRI, for disease or illness affecting the kidneys, irrespective of where they were referred from.


As renal patients we have created this site to help you if you are:

  • a patient diagnosed with Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
  • a carer, relative of friend of a patient
  • a person considering organ donation
  • a person considering or wanting to make a charitable donation to the MRIKPA
  • Local General Practitioners (GPs)


We have created this site with

  • Information and work about the MRIKPA
  • General information about kidney disease, treatments and diets
  • News and information specific to the renal and transplant teams at Manchester Royal Infirmary
