Resource Description: 

Audio recording of kidney patient, Andy Williamson, speaking to the Green Nephrology Summit 2010 about his personal journey and the growing realisation of his dependence on finite resources that are being used up with little thought. Meanwhile, the biggest wasted resource is the patient.

Although he now has a transplant, Andy is conscious that he may one day need to have dialysis again, and that his daughter may one day need kidney replacement therapy. Anything that we can do to reduce the destruction of the natural habitat we take for granted is very important – this is everyone’s responsibility.
