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 links to aspects of living donation and 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) or joining a sharing scheme you should be able to find what you’re looking for.
