The UK Renal Registry Annual Patient Summary Report is available to view.

The report analyses data to the end of 2020 - the first year of the pandemic. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on kidney services has been significant, affecting the physical and mental health, wellbeing and livelihoods of people living with kidney disease.

Data collected by the UK Renal Registry showed that kidney patients, especially people with a transplant or on dialysis, are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19. The data collected by the Registry have helped to better understand the spread of the virus and its impact on kidney patients. In turn, the data have supported guidance issued by the UK Kidney Association and other members of the Kidney Charities Together group and have driven policy to protect kidney patients, including early access to vaccination against COVID-19.
