Engagement opportunity: Living with Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease is one of the most common long-term health conditions and can affect as many as 1 in 10 adults in the UK. The condition can have a huge impact on the lives of those living with it and can be very costly for the NHS.

Health Innovation Manchester and NIHR (Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester) are looking to recruit a maximum of five people living with chronic kidney disease or their families or those at risk of kidney disease (i.e. such as people living with diabetes) to form a panel attend an initial meeting with the research team from University of Manchester.

At this meeting, the project team will present a brief overview of the project which is titledChronic Kidney Disease, ‘Big Data’ and Lifestyle Changes. This will be followed by an open discussion so researchers can hear the group's thoughts on the proposal. If the grant application is successful, panel members will be invited back every six months over the lifetime of the project which is 18-months. Successful public contributors will be reimbursed at the rate of £20 per hour for their time with an additional one-off payment of £5 per person, per meeting towards the cost of internet access capped at £30 per month. 

Please refer to the document attached for further information, including who to contact if you or any of your contacts are interested in taking part in this research.
