The BTS are going to hold a joint one day meeting together with NHSBT OTDT examining the role of machine perfusion in liver transplantation.
The use of novel technologies, primarily to increase organ utilisation, but also to facilitate workforce sustainability, equity of access and research interventions will be a major growth area in the coming decade and we want the UK transplant community to be at the forefront. This aspiration has been embodied in the eighth recommendation of the recent OUG report.
This meeting will be an inclusive event to allow all the UK centres to reflect on their own practice and experience, followed by an opportunity to formulate a blueprint for working together going forwards to become a major international force in this arena.
