Scottish Renal Registry Annual Report
The Scottish Renal Registry is a national registry which collects and analyses data on patients who have been diagnosed with renal failure and other renal disorders in Scotland. Data has been collected from Scottish Renal units since 1960, which is the year when regular and routine renal replacement therapy (RRT) for established renal disease (ESRD) started in Scotland. All renal units in Scotland fully participate in the data collection of the Registry.
Through the collection of national data, the Registry aims to:
- Improve the quality of renal services provided in Scotland through audit and peer review.
- Plan for the provision of future renal services.
- Undertake research including the production of basic demography & epidemiology statistics.
- Help support the training of medical staff.
The Scottish Renal Registry is part of the Scottish Renal Association and oversees the work that is undertaken.
