The UK Renal Data Collaboration (UKRDC) was formed at a meeting in The University Department of Medicine, The Royal Infirmary Edinburgh on 29 Nov 2012. The current organisations in the UKRDC are the UK Renal Registry (UKRR), the Scottish Renal Registry (SRR), Renal PatientView (RPV), the UK Registry for Rare Kidney Diseases (RADAR) and the British Association for Paediatric Nephrology (BAPN). The UKRDC itself therefore represents a strategic alliance with each organisation retaining their own governance structures through their respective accountable officers. More details are available in the UKRDC White Paper.

Renal Informatics Staff

E-mail Print PDF


Over the years renal informatics staff have made many substantial and valuable contributions to the development and running of the various informatics systems in use in renal centres around the country. Indeed many have become extremely skilled in their work and have developed a whole multitude of IT related innovations to help support the clinical service. At the same time, it is widely recognised that there is much variation around the country with respect to the grade, training, support and development of those individuals in these roles - RIXG throught its IT advocate programme carried out a survey in 2008 which clearly demonstrated this (direct link to survey or download pdf file).

As a step to providing support for renal centres in the management of informatics staff, Kate Harris and Cherry Bartlett (on behalf of RIXG) have produced a carefully constructed document which aims to match the various roles of renal informatics support staff to the relevant Agenda for Change profile factors and the relevant NHS Knowledge and Skills Framework dimensions. This document is now available for download and is freely distributable - it has also been passed to NHS Kidney Care and to the BRS for further consideration.
