A referral can be sent from your family doctor, nephrologist or dialysis centre. Once we receive some basic tests and bloodwork, we will begin your evaluation for a kidney transplant.
When we have the complete referral package, we will call you to book an appointment through FASTRAK in our Kidney Transplant Clinic.
Speak to your healthcare team about getting referred to the Kidney Transplant Program at Toronto General Hospital.
Patients can also
self-refer to our program. When we receive a self-referral, we will contact your dialysis centre or doctor and work with them to have tests and bloodwork completed as needed.
Once we receive a referral package, we will call you within
two to three business days.
If the referral package is not complete, we will work with your doctor and dialysis team to complete your referral. It may take a few days to a few weeks to complete all the tests required for the referral.
Our goal is to complete your evaluation for kidney transplant within
90 days of receiving a complete referral package.
Your doctor can get all the referral information they need in our
guide for referring physicians.
One organ and tissue donor can save up to 8 lives and improve life for up to 75 others.
