Wider, longer-term services needed for liver transplant patients

 

In February 2020, we conducted a survey to find out what sort of care is important to people having liver transplants. We found important gaps in service provision and PSC Support is working with leading transplant clinicians to improve services for patients before and after liver transplant.

We’re using these results to help demonstrate the urgent need for wider services and support for liver patients before and after transplant.
