Members of the EU, including the UK, have worked together to produce a Reference Toolkit for all Member States concerning living organ donation for the purpose of transplantation.
It sets out, and describes, the Core Principles for the establishment, organisation and oversight of living donor transplantation, gives examples of good practice, and contains an extensive list of references to other relevant
This tool box on living kidney donation and transplantation is intended to help Member States establish or optimise
their living donor programmes, by reviewing the key aspects of living kidney donation and transplantation.
Although the toolbox focuses on kidney donation, the principles apply to the living donation of other organs, although naturally the details may vary due to organ specific factors and considerations.
