One day. Six operations. Three kidneys. The story of an organ donor chain involving St George’s

November 12 2018
On the morning of the 13th September 2017, 6 people went into surgery to donate or receive a kidney. A year after their life-changing surgery, the Guardian newspaper brought together those 6 people in a kidney donor circle for the first time.

The collection of transplantations took place as part of the UK Living Kidney Sharing Scheme.

The chain spanned 3 hospitals and involved 6 teams of surgeons.
