Quality standard

Update information

Update information

October 2018: Changes have been made to align this quality standard with the NICE guideline on renal replacement therapy and conservative management. Statement 4 was withdrawn because it was not in line with the NICE guideline. Statement 6 was withdrawn because there was no longer a valid evidence source. References and links to source guidance throughout have also been updated.

Minor changes since publication

December 2023: Links to the UK Kidney Association (formerly the Renal Association) guidelines have been updated throughout. Data sources have been updated and audience descriptions amended to include examples of specific healthcare professionals. Supporting information for quality statement 8, including the quality measures, has been amended and updated to reflect the updated UK Kidney Association guideline on vascular access for haemodialysis.

January 2015: Changes to the data sources sections for quality statements 2, 3, 5 and 6 to remove incorrect references to the UK Renal Registry.
