It aims to support kidney doctors, patients and allied healthcare workers.
The RA is a registered charity with over 30 employees based in Bristol.
Following an external governance review earlier this year, the RA seeks to strengthen its Trustee Board to help lead the Association as it continues its exciting development and delivers its strategic plan which will be launched in February 2019. Major changes are already underway including the appointment of a CEO over the whole entity (currently providing operational leadership over the Registry arm). The secretariat supporting the professional arm was recently brought in house.
The RA Board is looking to appoint an outstanding non-member trustee who brings finance and risk experience.
