Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is of growing importance in the UK. The NHS is increasingly
focussing on prevention and on the early detection and treatment of potentially progressive
disease, whilst the prevalence of risk factors for CKD, such as diabetes, obesity and hypertension
is rising. It is therefore a great pleasure to introduce this timely new guideline on CKD from the
National Collaborating Centre for Chronic Conditions (NCC-CC) and the National Institute
for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
