The purpose of this study is to audit the effects of changing all hemodialysis patients from intravenous to subcutaneous administration of ESA's, to ensure that a cost-saving is achieved and that this does not occur at the expense of anemia control. The dose changes will occur according to usual clinical care of patients and not along a protocol.
