Renal and Kidney Transplants
The Nottingham Kidney Transplant Unit is based at the City Hospital.
The catchment area for adult transplants covers much of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Staffordshire as patients from the Derby Renal Unit are also referred to Nottingham for transplantation.
We do 80-100 adult and paediatric transplants each year.
A kidney transplant is the best treatment for medically-suitable patients with end stage kidney disease. This may be a transplant from a live donor who will usually be someone who is close to you or from a deceased donor where they or their family have wanted their organs to be used.
