Intune with our communities

Midlands Region Project of the Year: Sheffield Dialysis Patients - Broadfield Patients Social Club
Sheffield Dialysis Patients - Broadfields Social Club is established for patients who are attending dialysis 3/4 times a week and often don’t have a holiday or day out.
The Social Group - supported by SAKA - Sheffield Area Kidney Association, allows patients to go out for a weekly meal and quiz night and go on day trips when possible. It is run by volunteers and a staff member and is a much welcomed distraction for patients coping with the demands of dialysis.
Everything done depends on raising funds to allow patients to go free or at a subsidised rate.
