Elected Officers

Richard Van Roon

Chair and NKF Representative

"I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease in the 1990’s following a company medical examination. As the condition worsened I had to go onto dialysis in 2001 firstly at the Churchill and then at Swindon. Fortunately I received a transplant in August 2002 and after initial problems my new kidney started to work well and luckily continues to do so. I joined the SCKPA in 2005 and later the committee as the National Kidney Federation representative. Last September I was voted in as Chairman. " 

Martin Wood

Vice Chair


Bob Price


I’ve have received haemodialysis since 1981 with one transplant lasting five weeks. I wasn’t a suitable candidate for the transplant list again and have particularly enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of home haemodialysis since. I joined the SCKPA in 1984 to meet other patients in similar circumstances to share experiences and give and receive support. I have also represented the SCKPA on the committee of the National Kidney Federation for many years.”
