Transplant co-ordinator

Transplant co-ordinator – a specialist nurse who is responsible for managing the transplant process.

There are three different roles:

  • Specialist nurses in organ donation (SNOD’s) are responsible for the care of a patient who has died; they also speak to the family and organise the organ donation procedure.
  • Recipient transplant co-ordinators are responsible for arranging the tests needed to assess patients' suitability to go on the transplant waiting list. They coordinate the transplant waiting list and arrange follow-up consultations after transplantation.
  • Donor transplant co-ordinators are responsible for arranging the tests for potential living kidney donors.  They organise the living donor transplant operation and arrange follow-up consultations for donors.
