NICE publishes guidance on renal transplantation

NICE has published new rapid COVID-19 guidance for children, young people and adults who need or who have had a kidney transplant, and people who are donating a kidney (live donors).

The new recommendations aim to minimise the risk of infection for patients and living donors before, during and after transplantation. They emphasise the importance of communication between patients and their specialists to ensure they can make informed decisions and understand the implications of transplantation and donation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
