To mark World Kidney Day which was held on Thursday, 8 March, staff from Renal Services manned an information stand on the concourse at Ninewells Hospital.

Representatives from local charities Tayside Kidney Patients Association and Revival were also at the stand promoting the important messages of what people can do to help look after their kidneys.

Sid Grant, Chair of Revival, tried out the exercise bike while Peter Carnegie, Chair of Tayside Kidney Patients Association, was handing out information leaflets.

Senior charge nurse Shona Borrett had a busy time offering blood pressure checks to visitors at the stand.

World Kidney Day also coincided with International Women’s Day and to mark this there was specific information to raise awareness of kidney disease and women’s health.
