UK Organ Donation and Transplantation: The next NHS strategy

We are working together to develop a new NHS Organ Donation and Transplantation Strategy, and we are asking for your input and ideas to help us develop this vital next chapter for the benefit of donors and patients.

You will have received an invitation to attend one of our events where stakeholders from across the community will get together to discuss how we can deliver an ambitious and exciting future.  

We'll be looking well into the future (5 to 10 years) and encouraging people to think bigger and look further to help us answer our strategic challenges.

We also ask that you come with an open mind and be prepared to think about the big themes you would like to see for the future of Organ Donation and Transplantation in the United Kingdom. There is no dress code.

We will be working in mixed groups. You will be asked to share your ideas with colleagues by making notes and discussing your ideas verbally. There will be facilitators on every table to guide discussions, help and answer questions during the day.

What will happen after the events

Once this series of events are complete, we will begin assessing the data you have given us and will work closely with our Steering Group to begin writing the new strategy.

The written documents will then go through a consultation process, which we will share more details about nearer the time. 

We are aiming to publish the strategy by spring 2020. 

Anthony Clarkson, Director - Organ Donation and Transplantation at NHS Blood and Transplant says:

"I would like to personally thank you in advance for giving up your valuable time and helping us to prepare the strategy for Organ Donation and Transplantation in the UK.

"We certainly couldn’t attempt to do this without your input and both myself and my team really value and appreciate your commitment."
