ACR project for patients with diabetes
A programme sponsored by NHS Digital to monitor urine albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) annually for patients with diabetes. This enables patients with diabetes to test their kidney function from home. We will share your contact details with Healthy.io to enable them to contact you and confirm that you wish them to send you a test kit. This will help identify patients at risk of kidney disease and help us agree any early interventions that can be put in place for the benefit of your care. If you do not wish to take part in the service, you have the opportunity to decline when Healthy.io contact you. If you do not wish to receive any further information from Healthy.io then they will delete any data that they hold about you and we will continue to manage your care within the Practice. Further information about this is available at: http://bit.ly/testACR.
