Mrs Ward founded the charity, the British Kidney Patient Association, in 1975 when her son Timbo started dialysis. Since then, no charity has done more to improve facilities, services, care and support for kidney patients and their families in the UK.
Elizabeth pioneered the very first organ donor card, as well as setting up the first holiday facilities in the UK and Europe for dialysis patients. She dedicated her life to improving the quality of life for kidney patients and made a huge difference to thousands of people with kidney disease over more than three decades.
We at Kidney Care UK carry her mantle forward and continue to build on her legacy. She is part of our heritage and we carry on her work so that many more patients have the access to the care and support they need to live well with kidney disease.
The family have let us know that in line with Elizabeth’s wishes there will not be a funeral at this time but there will be a Thanksgiving Service when we are allowed to meet again, we will provide more details of this in due course.
