Purbeck PCN Surgeries are working together with Healthy.io to offer a home self-test for kidney disease.

The service is for patients with diabetes to make ACR urine testing easier and more convenient. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) affects 1 in 10 adults in the UK. The most common causes of CKD are diabetes and high blood pressure. Patients due an ACR test will receive an SMS message from Healthy.io. They can choose to accept or decline being contacted by Healthy.io.
