GV Health supports World Kidney Day
GV Health is helping to raise awareness of kidney disease. It is joining in with purple-themed activities on World Kidney Day, 13th March 2014, and donating 15% from all purple cytotoxic bag sales made in March to Kidney Research UK.
Go Purple aims to raise awareness of kidney disease by encouraging as many people as possible to undertake activities using the charity's purple signature colour in March. In 2013, the first time the event took place, over £25,000 was raised with over 500 schools, companies and community groups taking part.
"As one of the biggest suppliers to the NHS and other healthcare organisations of specialist purple waste bags used for cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, we felt 'Going Purple' in March would be a great way to highlight World Kidney Day," says the manufacturer. "So if your organisation uses purple waste bags for cytotoxic and cytostatic waste, make sure you place an order in March and we will donate 15% of the order value to Kidney Research UK."
GV Health cytotoxic bags meet all UN, UK Department of Health and NHS requirements so if you have not tried them before, March is a great time to do it. They are in stock now and available through a variety of leading stockists including NHS Supply Chain.
If your organisation wants to get involved in Go Purple this March, visit www.kidneyresearchuk.org for information and ideas about how to get started, and help Kidney Research UK fund more research into kidney disease and save lives.
Every year over 55,000 people in the UK alone, are treated for kidney failure, while over three million people in the UK are at risk from the growing epidemic of kidney disease - which can affect anyone at any age.
Kidney Research UK is the largest funder of kidney research in the UK, aiming to find better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for kidney disease. Early detection results in better outcomes. Over 90% of people on the organ waiting list need a kidney, yet fewer than 3,000 transplants - less than half those waiting - are carried out each year.
