NHS England and NHS Improvement and NHS Blood and Transplant are working closely with transplant units to optimise organ utilisation, including facilitating a patient’s move to an alternative unit where possible. NHS England and NHS Improvement have published guidance to local systems to support the restoration and recovery of solid organ transplants and regional teams have developed recovery plans. This includes streamlined pathways for the provision of solid organ transplantation and the associated critical care capacity, informed by different COVID-19 scenarios.
