Joining the network

Membership is entirely voluntary. NHS hospital Trusts have been invited to join the network via an approach to their medical directors from their London AKI Network regional leads.

On a practical level membership will mean you have the following

  1. An annually updated guideline with an integrated patient pathway for AKI that is fully endorsed by your regional renal unit.
  2. An annually updated education resource for your medical staff, consistent with guidelines.
  3. Collaboratively designed audits on NCEPOD and other guideline compliance, with access to London-wide data to assess how your organisation is performing.
  4. A 'regional governance' structure, to address sector-wide issues such as the safe and timely patient transfers from your organisation to the regional renal unit
  5. Full participation. You will help determine initiatives and developments, including collaborative redesign of regional AKI pathways.

We have collated materials for trust AKI leads in the toolkit to enable rapid implementation of our initiatives in your organisation.

If you would like more information, or wish to join the network, please email us on Alternatively contact your London AKI Network regional lead.
