If you have had a deceased donor transplant you will not know the donor. But at some point after your transplant you may wish to contact the family. This can only be done anonymously. You can give a letter to your transplant co-ordinator at Guy’s or King’s who will pass it on to the family.
Can I talk to someone who has had a transplant?
Guy’s and King’s offer peer support to all kidney patients. You may wish to speak to someone who is also waiting for a transplant, someone who has had a transplant or someone who donated a kidney. Ask any of the kidney team for a copy of the peer support leaflet or contact the peer support link nurse.
Guy’s telephone: 020 7188 7924 King’s telephone: 020 3299 6245
