Living Donation

Although the numbers have declined slightly in recent years, Living Donation remains a significant contributor to the number of kidney transplants performed in the UK. Many renal centres are adopting a Transplant First strategy, aiming to transplant a patient prior to them needing to dialyse and indeed, research would suggest that this is the gold standard of Renal Replacement Therapy (RRT).  This section of the website provides useful links to many aspects of living donation, from Transplant TV videos to details of reimbursement expenses for donors so whatever your interest in living donation, be it donating to a family member, donating to someone you don’t know (altruistic, non-directed) of joining a sharing scheme you should be able to find what you’re looking for.
