Transplantation Advisory Group

The Transplantation Advisory Group (TAG) is a forum for discussion on issues arising in living and deceased organ donation, in particular:

  • discussion of new policy issues and emerging areas in transplantation

  • identification of revisions required to current HTA or NHSBT policies

  • discussion on the complex ethical issues in transplantation in order to ensure the requirements of the HT Act and associated regulations are met

  • guidance on issues surrounding Independent Assessor (IA) performance, generally identified during the reaccreditation process.

The group's three core functions are to:

  • maintain strategic oversight of living and deceased organ donation

  • provide a forum for debate on sector-specific issues to inform policy decisions and identify work streams/projects
