Programme information

As part of the wider Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Programme, HI NENC is delivering a Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) programme Chronic Kidney Disease – Health Innovation NENC. The CKD programme will focus on improving earlier diagnosis and supporting early medical treatment of people with CKD to slow disease progression and reduce the development of cardiovascular comorbidity. Join us to learn more about CKD and the resources available to help.

Through facts.CKD programme HI NENC will support Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to implement the North East and North Cumbria renal Operational Delivery Network Guidance for CKD and improve diagnosis rates in people with CKD.

A key priority of the programme is to reduce health inequalities; we know that approximately 50% of coded CKD resides in 20% of practices within the areas of highest socio-economic deprivation. We aim to work with our partners, including the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS) to ensure that activities are focused on areas of higher deprivation and groups of people who are at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease as a result of their CKD.
