Patient deaths on organ transplant waiting list in the United Kingdom (UK) 2019/20

233 patients died on the organ transplant waiting list while waiting for a kidney transplant in the United Kingdom (UK) during the period 2019/20, by far the highest number compared to other organs. In the year to March 2020, 49 and 42 people also died waiting for lung and liver transplants respectively.

Transplant situation in the UK

The number of people waiting for a kidney transplant in the UK was over 4.7 thousand in 2019, which was the highest for any organ by quite a distance. Again, this was followed by individuals waiting for liver transplants and lung transplants with 437 and 345 patients each respectively. The problem exists is that in 2017/18 the number of potential donors was over 4.5 times the number of actual donors in the UK.

Survival chances after a transplant

In the UK, the one-year survival rate after a kidney transplant is generally good. Since 2005, 99 percent of those receiving a kidney transplant from a living donor survived for at least one-year post-transplant. The survival rates from deceased donors are slightly below, sitting at a 97 percent survival rate for the period 2014 to 2017.
