Abstract

The number of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing at an alarming rate, with new patients starting renal replacement therapy (CKD stage 5, or CKD5) constituting a fifth of the patients receiving treatment each year in the UK. At the same time, the age demographic of the CKD population has shifted, with over half of patients starting haemodialysis now over 60 years old.
