Introduction and Aims: Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) is widely prevalent in patients undergoing dialysis and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. There are several differing target ranges set by the renal association, KDIGO and KDOQI with anecdotal evidence of significant variation in practice across UK renal units. The aim of this study was to examine the achievement of targets for calcium, phosphate and PTH according to the various available guidelines and relate this to staffing and services across 8 UK renal units.
