NICE Chronic Kidney Disease Assessment and Guidelines

In August 2021, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published NG203, "Chronic Kidney Disease: assessment and management". This is an updated, combined version of three guidelines: "chronic kidney disease in adults: assessment and management", "chronic kidney disease (stage 4 or 5): management of hyperphosphataemia", and "chronic kidney disease: managing anaemia" and was also extended to cover children and young people (CAYP).  The purpose of this article is to summarise key new and updated recommendations from NG203, relevant to laboratory practice.
