The Sussex Kidney Trust was formed in 1967 by the Sussex Area of the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies and to this day is still run by dedicated and completely voluntary Committee of this Area, all the money donated going to the purchase of vital equipment for the Renal Units of the Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton, Worthing and Bexhill.

Since the formation of the Trust we have been able to purchase over £1 Million of equipment for these units and will hopefully be on the way to the next million pounds' worth with your continued help.

We are indebted to the members of the Sussex Area Flower Clubs and the many people who support the Sussex Kidney Trust without whose generosity we would be unable to supply this vital equipment for use at the Hospitals and in patients' homes.

Please help us to keep up the good work.

Message from Jenny Coxhead, SKT  Chairman:  

Hello Everyone.  I am delighted to be able to give you the good news that the new chairs have been delivered to the Brighton Hospital and hopefully they will be installed in the Renal Unit shortly.  I will keep you posted.   

Best wishes, Jenny

The 'Riva'  Home Dialysis Chair

Over the years,the Sussex Kidney Trust has purchased a great number of special chairs for the Home Dialysis patients use. The one pictured is called a Riva chair and has many different adjustments thus enabling the patient to be extremely comfortable during their treatment, it is also covered in washable material which is essential. Prior to the Riva, patients had to use a household chair which was not always very satisfactory nor indeed comfortable. The chairs do not become the property of the patient but are returned to the Hospital when no longer required.
