Love our Kidneys

Kidney disease affects hundreds of people in Taranaki each year. But the misconception is that this is all due to Diabetes, especially Type II diabetes. There are actually many different reason's patient require time in the Renal Unit. And those that do have some for of Kidney disease are severely effected on a daily basis.

As part of Project Maunga Stage 2, Taranaki Base Hospital is going to have a new Renal Unit. His is so we can make sure patients across the region have access to state of the art treatment, whilst also being kept comfortable in a more pleasurable environment.


Our Champions

We spoke to some local people who use the current renal services at Taranaki Base Hospital to find out how the new unit will make a difference to the treatment they receive.

By donating to the Love our kidneys cam[aign, you will be helpnig Taranaki provide the best renal treatment for a variety of illnesses. For many people, the onset of kidney disease is unexplained and is not related to lifestyle chopices. This is why it is vital we have these services. You never know when you or your loved ones may need them.
