Welcome to the ANN UK Networking page

Networking is a great opportunity to exchange best practice knowledge, learn about what is going on in the kidney care community and stay abreast of the latest developments.

Active professional networking can help us strengthen the voice of kidney care nurses. Join one of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs). Get connected via our social media pages and seek advice or support. Keep an eye on our newsfeed which has information on new initiatives, learning events and opportunities. Get involved in networking through ANN UK, the national community for kidney care nurses.
