This organisation was founded some years ago by Mr. Alan Curry, in recognition to services given to his wife in renal treatment preceeding her kidney transplant.
By means of various fund raising activities, the Organisation provides the required funds and medical equipment at the Renal Unit, where, patients form 75% of our membership.
During recent years, the Lifecycle Organisation has financially supported our Group in ventures connected with the well-being of our patients/members.

European database of suspected adverse drug reaction reports
Website at: www.adrreports.eu
Created by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), this website is a positive first step in the implementation of the EudraVigilance Access Policy. Granting patients and the public access to the data held in Eudravigilance – the central EU database for adverse reaction reports – is a key part of the new EU pharmacovigilance legislation. EPF worked closely with EMA in developing the EudraVigilance Access Policy and to ensure that the new portal contains information relevant to patients and is presented in a user-friendly format.
