Give a Kidney: Ask the Experts - Living Donation
This is an opportunity for anyone considering living kidney donation, those going through the process or those who have been through the process, whether donating to someone you know, or anonymously to the waiting list, to have your questions answered by our team of experts. If you might need a transplant and are considering living donation, the panel will also be able to answer any questions you may have (although, for obvious reasons will not be able to give specific clinical advice for individual cases). We know that the process of thinking about donation can be very daunting, and many people have lots of questions and concerns before, during and even after the process. We hope this event will be an opportunity to ask them in an informal and friendly setting. You can choose to remain anonymous should you wish to, and there’s no pressure to ask, if you just want to come along to hear the answers to other people’s questions.

Feel free to send questions in advance to info@giveakidney.org

Dr Paul van den Bosch
GP and Non-Directed Living Kidney Donor
Paul van den Bosch is a GP. He qualified from Charing Cross Hospital in 1978 and has worked both in the UK and overseas in Zambia and the Solomon Islands. Since 2002 he has worked at a small practice in Pirbright near Guildford and for the local addiction service. He donated a kidney in 2008, which he says was very straightforward, “despite my grumbles about the assessment process to Lisa [Burnapp], who was my excellent and long suffering transplant co-ordinator.” Since then he has been looking at ways to encourage people to donate, so he was very pleased to join Give a Kidney at its inception.
