Patient Appeal Committee

The Patient Appeal Committee reviews appeal cases of patients seeking financial and social assistance as well as for admission into NKF’s dialysis programme. These cases fall outside NKF’s approved criteria for assistance and are referred to the Committee by NKF’s Admissions and Care & Counselling departments. The Committee deliberates on these appeal cases and after careful consideration, makes recommendations to the CEO to accept, reject or provide alternative assistance to the applicants. In addition, the Committee reviews and provides recommendations for patients with behavioural or adherence issues.
