The Kidney PREM is an annual survey of UK kidney patients.
The 2022 Kidney PREM survey has now closed; the results will be published in spring / summer 2023.
The annual Kidney Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM) is completely anonymous.
We encourage everyone over the age of 17 and living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to take part. This includes those attending a UK hospital renal unit or satellite unit but not yet on renal replacement therapy and anyone who has received a kidney transplant. Thanks to the support of the British Association for Paediatric Nephrology, Kidney PREM 2022 was a truly national event and was extended to all 13 Paediatric Centres, allowing the collection of views from young people (aged 12 years or older) and parents/carers of children who are receiving treatment for any stage of chronic kidney disease.
What is the Kidney PREM?
PREM stands for Patient Reported Experience Measure. The Kidney PREM is an annual survey of UK kidney patients that aims to:
- Help renal unit teams understand how patients feel about their experience of care
- Show where improvement can be made from a patient perspective
- Provide a national picture of people’s experience of care
The Kidney PREM survey has been created by patients and professionals working together to produce a report on how kidney patients experience care across the UK. It’s by listening to you and getting your feedback that we can make change happen and improve services. It does not include your name and has nothing on it that could identify you, so please feel free to answer as honestly as possible.
Who runs the Kidney PREM?
The Kidney PREM is led by Kidney Care UK, the UK’s leading kidney patient support charity, and the UK Kidney Association (UKKA).
In 2021 it was completed by over 12,000 people in the UK who live with kidney disease and responses were received from every adult NHS renal centre across the UK.
