The Human Tissue Authority (HTA) welcomes NHS Blood and Transplant’s introduction of their 3-for-1 living donor transplant scheme, launched today on World Kidney Day.
A decade ago it first became possible for individuals in the UK to donate a kidney to someone they did not know, and had never met - this form of living donation is known as non-directed altruistic donation.
As our Living Donation Officer you will perform a broad range of activities to support the management and coordination of our assessment process for living organ and bone marrow donation across the UK.
The HTA has been asked to provide information on how many child bone marrow/blood cases were approved and rejected in the years 2014-15 and 2015-16.
The HTA has developed a useful flowchart that shows you the steps in order to become a living organ donor.

This guidance provides information to potential donors, recipients and those setting up websites that aim to bring these people together on how the system works in the UK and issues to consider.
Under the Human Tissue Act 2004, any potential donation of a solid organ or part organ for transplantation must be assessed by an Independent Assessor (IA) and a report submitted to the HTA for consideration.
