Shared Care Protocols/Policies

GP practices should be aware that they are only required to undertake blood monitoring for renal patients in exceptional circumstances. The renal physicians will contact the practice directly to arrange this.

Excessive venopuncture may predispose patients to poor venous access later in treatment and should be avoided.
