Out of interest is there anyone here who has virtual clinic appointments with your Nephrologist? (A telephone appointment).
As I am stable and have been the last few years at stage 3 my neph said as long as i get my bloods done as requested by them, I will receive my results online and they arrange a day and time to ring me to go over everything, it seems they are doing this with some if stable and to stop it overcrowding as such at the actual clinic.
However, blood pressure to still be monitored with family GP Nurse and at home, also urine tested with GP nurse.
I am in South Wales (UK).
