Liver Allocation Proposals - feedback sought Feb '15

The Liver Patients' Transplant Consortium (LPTC), is asking for liver patient groups to provide feedback on new proposals for the allocation of livers for transplant, and has provided:

The LPTC would like to garner patient group feedback on the following specific questions, and your feedback will help shape PSCSupport's response:

  1. Do you agree that the proposed model, if introduced, should be subject to continuous monitoring to identify disadvantaged groups with the opportunity for scheme-checkpoints three times over the first five years of running?
  2. Do you agree that the proposed model should be subject to further real-time shadow donor offering in 2015 to identify centre decline rates and give units experience of using the proposed transplant benefit model?
  3. Do you agree that the proposed allocation model meets the criteria defined by NHSBT?
  4. Please tell us your opinion on your preferred allocation model, providing a rationale for your position.


Ways to feedback to PSC Support:


If you wish to feedback, we would be grateful if you could do so by 3 March 2015.


Thank you.
