Chaired by Jonathan Hope, a CHD Patient and Patient Co-Chair, Think Kidneys, the conference will demonstrate how to improve practice against the new quality statements.

“We know that a high number of people with long-term kidney problems will develop cardiovascular disease. This means they have an increased risk of suffering a fatal heart attack or stroke. It is important for healthcare professionals to speak to patients about their treatment options.

The effectiveness of statins is now well proven, as is their long term safety. They may appeal to a lot of people who are at risk.” Prof Gillian Leng, Deputy Chief Executive, NICE July 2017
