The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Outpatient Transplant Services

The Liver Unit offers several outpatient services within the liver transplant programme.

We work closely with a wide network of hospitals across the North of England and patients who access this service are cared for jointly by their local hospital specialists and those here in the Liver Unit.

Our clinics are held in the Bexley Wing and Lincoln Wing of St James’s University Hospital.

Transplant Assessment

Patients are referred by their local hospital specialists for an opinion regarding liver transplantation.

Patients referred for possible transplant assessment are seen in our outpatient clinic in the first instance. Specialist delivered assessment is offered through our subspeciality clinics and through a new patient assessment clinic. All our transplant assessment services are consultant led.

From these clinics patients may then be referred for a formal transplant assessment which in the majority of cases can be offered in an outpatient setting.

Pre-Transplant Clinic

This clinic provides ongoing assessment for transplant and care for patients on the liver transplant waiting list. It is part of a transplant super-clinic supported by the multidisciplinary team so that care can be tailored to individual patient needs.

Post-Transplant Clinics

Following discharge from the ward after a liver transplant patients attend our post-transplant services. Follow-up is lifelong although longer-term more stable patients enter shared care arrangements with their local hospital services and general practitioners.
