AKI Network

The London Acute Kidney Injury Network (London AKI Network) is a collaboration of healthcare professionals and organisations involved in acute kidney care throughout London and its referring regions. We are now part of NHS England London Strategic Clinical networks and report to the London Renal Specialist Clinical Leadership Advisory Group.

Our aim is equitable, high-quality AKI prevention and care in the capital and beyond. We hope to achieve this through the collaborative delivery of AKI care pathways supported by guidelines, standards, education, clinical audit, innovation and research. We believe by working together we will have the resources, manpower, expertise and critical mass to build on our achievements to make further lasting improvements to AKI care in London.

LAKIN is multi-professional and multidisciplinary.  We decide policy through consultation and consensus. We are not wedded to top-down solutions and will support clinicians as they lead on the wider application of local innovation and best practice across the network.

AKI represents a major healthcare challenge. It is a common and serious condition. Care may be complex, logistically difficult and resource intensive. We believe AKI warrants a serious, strategic response similar to that afforded to other acute medical conditions such as stroke, myocardial infarction and trauma.
