ASK THE EXPERTS: LIVING KIDNEY DONATION
Saturday 14 November, 2020 10am
Online via Zoom
After successfully trialling our recent AGM online, we’re now pleased to announce our next free online event – Ask the Experts: Living Donation, which will also take place on Zoom.
This is an opportunity for anyone considering living kidney donation or those going through the process, whether donating to someone you know, or anonymously to the waiting list, to have your questions answered by our team of experts. If you might need a transplant and are considering living donation, the panel will also be able to answer any questions you may have (although, for obvious reasons, will not be able to give specific clinical advice for individual cases).
We know that the process of thinking about donation can be very daunting, and many people have lots of questions and concerns before and during the process. We hope this event will be an opportunity to ask them in an informal and friendly setting. You won’t appear on screen and you can choose to remain anonymous should you wish to. There’s no pressure to ask, if you just want to come along to hear the answers to other people’s questions.
We will be joined by Paul Gibbs, consultant transplant surgeon, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, Dr Adnan Sharif, consultant transplant nephrologist (kidney specialist) at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Lisa Burnapp, clinical lead for living donation, NHS Blood and Transplant. There will also be someone who has donated a kidney recently, who will be able to share their personal experience of donation. We are very grateful to all of them for their valuable time and expertise.
The event is free but we gratefully welcome donations to support the charity in helping achieve its mission ‘no waiting for a transplant for want of a kidney’.
