What were we asked to look at?
In order to assess the value of living donor organ transplantation, we have been asked to examine the cost effectiveness of living donation within the Scottish healthcare setting.
Why is this important?
The results will be used by NSD to aid decision-making and planning about how the service is run in the future. It is also envisaged that the results will help local services be able to cope with the anticipated increase in demand of living donation over the next five years.
