The living kidney donation process

What’s involved in the process for living kidney donors

All living kidney donors undergo a comprehensive assessment to minimise the short and long term risks to them, and to ensure the recipient receives the best possible transplant. 

Not everyone who offers is suitable to donate for a number of reasons, but the transplant teams appreciate the decision of anyone who comes forward. 

If you are considering donating a kidney to either a family member, friend or to a stranger, we understand that you will have a lot of questions.

Thinking about becoming a living kidney donor?

It’s important that all potential donors have an understanding of the various steps in the living kidney donation process. Please also discuss and share this information with your family and those closest to you.
