ACR project for patients with diabetes

This is a programme to remotely monitor urine albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR) annually for patients with diabetes. This enables patients with diabetes to test their kidney function from home. The service is fully-funded and is free to all patients. We will share your contact details with Healthy.io to enable them to contact you and confirm that you wish them to send you a test kit.  This will help identify patients at risk of kidney disease and help us agree any early interventions that can be put in place for the benefit of your care.  If you do not wish to be contacted by Healthy.io, you have the opportunity to say so by replying to the initial text message sent from the practice or when Healthy.io contact you.  If you do not wish to receive any further information from Healthy.io then they will delete any data that they hold about you and we will continue to manage your care within the Practice.  Further information about this is available at: https://www.nhs.uk/apps-library/acr-digital-urinalysis/
