Sadly we are no longer issuing our quarterly magazine VIVA!.  Jose Rico-Diaz, our recent editor, is unable to  continue to commit the time and effort required and no-one has yet volunteered to take over the role. His final edition is Winter 2019. 

Our thanks go to Jose for all his hard work in sourcing and collating articles, recipes, jokes and photos for his excellent seven editions keeping us up-to-date with kidney matters. 

If you would like any information or are willing to take over as editor, please contact our chair Richard Van Roon
