Online via Zoom
We’re pleased to announce our next webinar in the Winter Webinars 2021/22 series which is the return of the extremely popular – Give a Kidney: Ask the Experts: Living Donation. The first webinar we held back in November 2020 was an Ask the Experts session which proved extremely popular.
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 Dr Adnan Sharif, consultant transplant nephrologist (kidney specialist) at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Lisa Burnapp, Associate Director Living Donation & Transplantation, NHS Blood and Transplant, Frank Dor, Head of transplantation, consultant transplant and general surgeon at the Hammersmith Hospital London and Paul van den Bosch, GP and living donor. 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’.
