Supporting Kidney Patients and their families in Coventry & Warwickshire

CWKPA is a support group for renal patients and families in the Coventry and Warwickshire area: pre-dialysis, dialysis and transplant.

We hold regular events for our patients, raise funds to improve their lives and promote kidney disease awareness.

Renal patients attending George Eliot, Rugby, Stratford, Heathcote, Warwick, Clay Lane and University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire are all part of Coventry & Warwickshire Kidney Patients' Association.

Originally called The Warwickshire and Coventry Kidney Unit Appeal Fund, CWKPA was founded in 1979 by a small group of kidney patients, initially to raise much needed funds for the Renal Unit and Ward at Walsgrave Hospital. The name was changed in 1996 to Walsgrave Hospital KPA as we became more of a support group in line with other KPAs and has grown to include over 300 members.

A new superhospital, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, has replaced the Walsgrave Hospital, Coventry as the main center for dialysis and kidney transplantation in the Coventry and Warwickshire area bringing another name change in 2013 to Coventry & Warwickshire KPA.

If you would like to support our kidney charity by fundraising or making a donation we would be very pleased to hear from you. Email us via our contact page or go to our Just Giving page which can be found here:
