Meet the Committee
I joined NIKPA in January 2017 following my transplant in the summer of 2016.
I joined NIKPA in 2017, the same year I became a “gift of life” recipient.
I spent 18 years attending the Belfast City Hospital and another two at Antrim Area Hospital with Kidney disease.
I have been attending Belfast city hospital from the age of 18. In may 2002 I started dialysis in November I received my Transplant.
I have worked as a staff nurse in the Nephrology Department (mostly transplant) from 1977.
I am the daughter of a renal patient, Alan Martin. My late Father was one of the founding members of NIKPA .
I joined NIKPA in March 2020, 6 months after my kidney transplant, and just as the world was shutting down.
