Organ Donation and Transplantation


Matching world-class performance in organ donation and transplantation

Welcome to the NHS Blood and Transplant Organ Donation and Transplantation clinical website, which provides key guidelines, relevant statistics and procedural documents to help clinicians in providing an excellent standard of care to organ donors and transplant patients.

Transplantation is a milestone in modern medicine. We recognise the potential to save and improve lives through organ donation and transplantation. To realise this potential the NHS is committed to build upon the excellent progress achieved in the last five years to pursue excellent practice in the care of every potential donor and maximise the successful transplantation of all available organs.

Patients and family or friend's of patients are warmly welcomed but please bear in mind that information on this website is written for a clinical audience.
