A recent report has revealed that NHS' failure to timely diagnose people with chronic kidney disease has been resulting in the highest number of deaths due to the same. Also, the state is made to spend a huge amount as a consequence of the same.
A study dubbed `Chronic Kidney Disease in England: The Human and Financial Cost' had been conducted by researchers from the NHS Kidney Care. It has been found through the same that the costs i. e. over £1.4 billion a year, are almost equivalent to combined spending on treatment of breast, lung, skin and bowel cancers.
Nearly a million people are left undiagnosed on time and the same either later results in their deaths or some £1 in £77 spending on their long-term treatment. The reason in arrears the same being that they lack the essential medication as well as remain unaware of the kind of lifestyle they should have.
However, the Royal College of Physicians' chairman Dr. Charlie Tomson is of the opinion that late diagnosis is seen due to absence of any symptoms at early stage.
"This report shows that with the cost of caring for people, the NHS has to help clinicians find ways to identify and treat chronic kidney disease at an earlier stage", said national clinical director Dr. Donal O'Donoghue.
