Renal Patient View (RPV)
Renal PatientView takes information from your renal unit's computer system at least once a day and links it to useful information about your kidney condition and its treatment. Your blood test results are among some of the items for you to view as long as they are stored on your unit's renal computer system. As well as you, your GP will also have access and you can share your password with anyone you want. RPV is free to patients and you can enrol by completing a registration form.
For further details please do not hesitate to contact your Renal PatientView Administrator or go to www.renalpatientview.org
