Donal has been a Consultant Renal Physician at Salford Royal since 1992 and is also Professor of Renal Medicine at the University of Manchester. He was inaugural President of the British Renal Society, and more recently President of the Renal Association. He became the first National Clinical Director of Kidney Care at the Department of Health from 2007-2013.
Donal added: “I am delighted and humbled to be included in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to kidney patients . Kidney disease affects 850 million people worldwide - much of it preventable. It has been my privilege and pleasure to work with a countless number of excellent colleagues, patients and carers locally, nationally and internationally to raise awareness, increase choices and improve care for people with kidney disease.”
As well as leading our trustee board, Donal is a practising kidney doctor and active researcher.
