Guidance for donors on our processes

This guidance is for people donating organs (living organ donors). It explains what kind of organisation we are, our role in living organ donation from live donors, and what you need to know before you donate an organ. This guidance also explains the Independent Assessment process. This process includes a form for donors to sign to confirm that they are not receiving any reward (payment or other benefit) in connection with donating an organ.

We recommend that you read this guidance along with the other information provided by the transplant units.
