Eligible patients should by now have received a letter from the NHS (and/or St George's Hospital) and a PCR test kit as part of a programme to supply new treatments at home for COVID-19 to vulnerable members of the UK population. See below for more details. Kidney Care UK is offering an online seminar to explain these treatments and how eligible patients can access them.

For details of the seminar on the 7th February 2022 at 5pm - 6.30pm, visit the Kidney Care UK page here.
