Deceased donor transplant

Kidney transplant service

A deceased donor kidney transplant is possible due to the generous gift of organ donation by the family of someone who has died.

There's a national waiting list for kidney transplant from a deceased donor. Your recipient nurse co-ordinator will provide you with all the information you need about being on the waiting list.

You may be called for a transplant at any time. It is important that we have up to date contact information for you.

When we call you, you'll need to go to the Richard Bright ward at Guy's Hospital.

If you're waiting for a transplant, please:

  • tell your partner, close family or main contacts
  • plan who will take care of any children or dependants in advance
  • have a bag ready with toiletries, night clothes and information about any medicines you take
  • plan how you'll get to Guy's Hospital
