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 Statement 4 was withdrawn because it was not in line with the NICE guideline. Statement 6 was withdrawn because there was no longer a valid evidence source.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.
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.
