Since Part 2 of the Renal National Service Framework was published in 2005, GP's have been paid to test "at risk patients" for their EGFR reading to see if the level of Kidney Function was lower than normal, and more importantly whether it was stable or deteriorating. The NKF would like to know your experience of this, and in particular whether the GP knew sufficient about Kidney Disease to be able to advise someone with a declining EGFR what to do about it. Were life style changes being suggested for instance ? Please start a discussion or ask a question, the NKF wants your views.
