Pilot GP advice email service for CKD

To support GPs and aid practice staff in managing their chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients within primary care, the Trust CKD team will be trialling an email advice service for a four month period with effect from 3 August 2015.

Using the ICHC-tr.ckdadvice@nhs.net email address, the service is designed to be accessible, secure, confidential and user-friendly, and aims to support GPs and practice staff in offering the right treatment and referral decisions for their patients with CKD. The team hope this approach will benefit patients as they will be receiving care closer to home.
