Wellington Region Kidney Society

Community Health Service


The Wellington Region Kidney Society (WRKS) is a voluntary organisation of patients, families, friends and health professionals involved in renal care and treatment.

Our services include a liaison worker who organises support and communicates patient concerns, a "befrienders" network that links new renal patients with well-established patients, monthly coffee group meetings, quarterly newsletters, "take-home" packs for new patients, and extra amenities (e.g. magazines) for the hospital, training unit and community dialysis centre in Porirua.

We also operate a holiday home in Taupo, fitted with dialysis equipment (AK96 dialysis machine), available at affordable rent to members and families.
