Chronic Kidney Disease HIT

The Chronic Kidney Disease Health Integration Team (CKD HIT) is a team of clinical staff and patients, working together to improve patient outcomes and care pathways for patients with kidney disease.

The Health Survey for England found that 6-7 per cent of the population has kidney function of less than 60 per cent. This rises to over 30 per cent of the population over 75. The percentage with advanced disease is much lower.
