If you have been told by your GP that you have chronic kidney disease, we need to check how your kidneys are functioning every year as a minimum. Please make an appointment with our nursing team for a check. We will need to measure your blood pressure and take blood to monitor your kidney function. We also need to send a sample of fresh urine, so please bring this with you to the check if possible. Depending upon the results of these tests, we may need to see you for monitoring more frequently than annually.
