The UK Renal Registry (UKRR) is a resource for the development of patient care in renal disease. It was established by the Renal Association with support from the Department of Health, the British Association of Paediatric Nephrologists, and the British Transplant Society.

UKRR provides independent audit and analysis of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in the UK. The Registry provides a focus for the collection and analysis of standardised data relating to the incidence, clinical management and outcome of renal disease. It thus acts as a source of comparative data, for audit/benchmarking, planning, clinical governance and research. UKRR monitors indicators of the quality as well as quantity of care, with the aim of improving the standard of care.

Data is collected quarterly by automatic downloading from renal unit databases. Reports are published annually to allow comparative audit of facilities, patient demographics, quality of care and outcome measures.
