High Wycombe branch was founded in 2002, a year after my husband had a successful transplant. We felt there was no support for renal patients and their families in High Wycombe and the surrounding areas as the previous branch had closed.
We have a social meeting once a month where it is good to talk and share experiences in a relaxed atmosphere, offering support to patients and their families. People find it very therapeutic to talk, discuss and share problems because we know what it is like to be diagnosed with renal failure. This helps people to cope when dealing with dialysis and kidney transplants, people are always willing to listen and offer ideas to help.
We meet on the first Sunday of each month at 12.30 for lunch at The Kings Hotel Stokenchurch, Oxford Road HP14 3TA.
High Wycombe charges a tithe of £1 for attending each lunch, this goes straight to the branch funds.
