​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Coming To The Hospital

Exclamation mark

Living Donor Recipients must stop eating and drinking by midnight on the night before your operation. Your stomach needs to be empty. ​

When do I come to the h​​ospital?

If you are receiving a living donor kidney transplant​, you will be admitted the day before your surgery, to have a final assessment and ensure you are fit for surgery.

For deceased donor kidney transplants, you will have the same assessments done right before the surgery to make sure it is safe to go ahead with the transplant.​
