We are delighted to announce Kidney Research Yorkshire is now a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) non-commercial partner. This means studies funded by KRY are eligible for adoption on to the NIHR portfolio. This portfolio is an indicator of high quality research, and provides access to the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) services such as expert health services research advice about recruitment, site selection and access to NHS services. We thank Dr Winterbottom and The Yorkshire Dialysis vs Conservative Management Decisions Aid (YoDCA) research team for supporting us through this process and raising our profile nationally. Details of the YoDCA research we funded is published at: Winterbottom AE, Bekker HL, Russon L, Hipkiss V, Ziegler L. Williams R, Mooney A. The Yorkshire Dialysis vs Conservative-management Decision Aid (YoDCA): study protocol. Journal of Kidney Care 2018; 2: 179-185.
