Kidney


Information about kidney transplantation in the UK

The kidney is the most commonly transplanted organ in the UK, in particular, it is the most commonly transplanted from living donors. A single normal kidney usually provides enough function for an adult, but occasionally two kidneys are transplanted into one patient. Patients with kidney failure due to diabetes may need a combined kidney and pancreas transplant.

This section of the site provides information on kidney transplantation in the UK with the associated policies, procedures and organisational structures.
