THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT PEOPLE IN THE TRANSPLANT TEAM
                                       AND EACH HAS A SPECIFIC ROLE



                   TRANSPLANT
                 CO-ORDINATORS

        The Co-ordinator is responsible for
        ensuring that the individual
        aspects of the donor’s care,
        including pre-donation assess-
        ments and the surgery itself, run as
        smoothly as possible. The co-
        ordinator is aware of what stage each
        donor is currently at in their
        assessment, and whom is responsible
        for each part of the process. Simply put,
        he/she co-ordinates the different
        aspects of the process, from initial
        assessment to post-operative care, to
                                                                                        TRANSPLANT CO-ORDINATORS
        ensure it runs as smoothly as possible.                      Grainne Lambe, Aileen Counihan and Laura Donovan




                                         CONSULTANT NEPHROLOGIST







































                   Prof. Peter Conlon, Dr. Mark Denton; Dr. Conall O’Seaghdha; Dr. Declan DeFreitas and Dr. Colm Magee
         The consultant nephrologist is the person who, together with the consultant transplant surgeon, has
         to be sure that the transplanted kidney is likely to restore the health and reasonable lifestyle
         of the intended recipient and that the donor’s health would not suffer as a result.
            Donors and recipients will generally each have a different nephrologist.
