Research project: HHRCKD Hampshire Health Record Chronic Kidney Disease study

Currently Active: 

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important, prevalent, and sometimes under-recognised problem.

The majority of moderate CKD (stage 3) is managed in Primary Care. The Hampshire Health Record (HHR) is a shared clinical record that holds individual linked extracts of GP and hospital records for a population of about 1.1 million people in 132 General Practices in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

The HHRCKD Study is a retrospective cohort study of 24,000 people with prevalent CKD in 2008 (defined biochemically from routine blood tests), followed up over 5 years to investigate:

  • Aspects of CKD management in primary care such as identification of CKD and measurement of albumin:creatinine ratio
  • Need for renal replacement therapy (dialysis and transplant), incidence of cardiovascular disease, and mortality
  • Appropriate use of medication
  • Health service use measures, including emergency hospital admission
  • Evidence of socioeconomic inequality in the above areas of investigation
