The following guidance is provided for clinical staff involved in facilitating organ donation in the UK. It is general guidance so please always check the latest Government COVID-19 advice for up to date national guidance as well as any local policies which may be applicable.

Because the situation is changing rapidly, please revisit this site to find the latest version of any guidance.

Reporting incidences of COVID-19

In order to capture and appropriately use and share real-time information on confirmed COVID-19 in transplanted patients and those on transplant waiting lists, please use the reporting mechanism below.

The first form collects information at presentation and the second facilitates follow-up with an outcome at or before 30 days later.

COVID-19 reporting forms

Please download the forms to your device and open with Adobe Reader for best performance – they may not be fillable if opened here (depending on your browser).

Please complete as much information as possible, but it is important to notify all patients (especially transplanted patients) so we will accept, as a minimum, sufficient patient identifiers only (eg name, NHS no.) at this stage.
