The Terry Feest award for innovation
In the UK Renal Registry (UKRR), we recognise that many people contribute to the UKRR giving freely their own time and with very little direct recognition. Where warranted for exceptional contribution, it has proven difficult to identify a suitable existing award for which to nominate them.
The ‘Terry Feest’ award was established in 2013 to acknowledge the contribution made by Professor Terry Feest, not only in the early days for his initiative in setting up the UKRR but also now in his retirement as he continues to contribute to quality improvement.
Professor Terry Feest is a retired nephrologist who for 15 years was Clinical Director of the Richard Bright Renal Unit, Southmead Hospital, Bristol. His long-term interests include the epidemiology and provision of treatment for renal failure, and the audit of the quality of renal care. He was the founding Chairman of the UK Renal Registry, a member of the appraisals board of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and for many years was clinical advisor to the National Kidney Federation (NKF).
