Severe restrictions on liver transplantation

As you are aware, COVID-19 is spreading rapidly across the UK. As a result there are now severe restrictions on the number of liver transplants that can be carried out in the UK.

Under constant review

The Clinical Directors from the seven UK liver transplant centres are working together to ensure that transplants can go ahead whenever possible. Please be reassured that your care is their top priority and this situation is under constant review.
