London Bridge hospital renal transplantation

London Bridge Hospital is one of only a handful of private hospitals to perform living donor renal transplants in the UK and is licensed as an organ transplant centre regulated by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA). The living donor renal transplant programme at London Bridge Hospital is built around three core strengths:

 

1. Multidisciplinary team

The collaborative nature of our multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) ensures that patients have access to the expertise of renal transplant surgeons, nephrologists, transplant nurses, pharmacists and consultants of other related specialities working as a team. This team is in place from initial evaluation through to transplant admission and post-transplant care. This approach means decisions are based on the collective views of a number of specialists.

2. An established service

London Bridge Hospital benefits enormously from its close relationship with Guy’s and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, its renal transplant team, the tissue typing laboratory and the renal histopathology based there. Furthermore, their transplant unit is one of the largest in the UK, performing around 250 transplants per year.

3. Critical care

The hospital offers first-class supportive services, including state-of the-art, level 2 and 3 intensive care facilities and the most up-to-date comprehensive imaging services supported by consultant radiologists with expertise in renal medicine. Completing the transplant team are our two full-time donor and recipient transplant coordinators.

 


 

A multidisciplinary consultant-led team

London Bridge Hospital is proud to host some of the UK’s leading nephrologists and renal transplant surgeons. These consultants work together as part of a multidisciplinary team ensuring that patients are referred to the subspecialists appropriate to their needs. The collaborative nature of the team ensures that patients have access to the expertise of renal surgeons, nephrologists, renal nurses and pharmacists throughout diagnosis and treatment.
