What happened?

The Kidney Patient Guide website and forum experienced a substantial server error on 5 June, making the site and forum unavailable. We still cannot rule out the cause being a malicious attack. Although passwords on the site are encrypted, for your security you will need to change your password before you can log in. In general we would recommend that you avoid using the same password across multiple sites.

The team at Cogapp, who maintain the Kidney Patient Guide website and forum on a pro bono basis, have worked hard to get the site up and running again.

The site has been moved to an entirely new server with up-to-date software installed.

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by the unavailability of the forum, and look forward to returning to business as usual.
