For the most current and relevant information, we encourage medical professionals to visit the UK Kidney Association for comprehensive resources and updates in the field. Patients and their families can find valuable, patient-centric information and support at Kidney Care UK.

We would also like to inform you that the Kidney Quality Improvement Partnership (KQIP) is now part of the UK Kidney Association. For more information, please visit KQIP’s homepage under the UK Kidney Association.

We thank you for your understanding and invite you to explore these recommended resources for up-to-date insights and guidance in kidney care and health.

  • KQuIP will focus on embedding systematic quality Improvement (QI) into everyday multidisciplinary paediatric and adult practice by clinicians and managerial staff within all renal services including kidney transplantation.
  • KQuIP will provide expert clinical strategic advice regarding QI within renal services to NHS England and the other UK Countries.
  • It will facilitate education, project management and capture of outcome data for QI projects in collaboration with renal clinical networks/Regional QI architecture and local renal units.
  • It is anticipated that this supportive framework will provide the freedom for clinicians to identify, foster, and encourage local innovation (bottom up ideas and priorities) and to address education of clinical staff to improve the quality of practice; with an expectation that this learning will be passed on and shared.

The Kidney Health Delivering Excellence document ambitions are at the centre of this initiative and will ensure that KQuIP activities remain patient focused and meaningful to patient groups.
