The recipient coordinator

An interview with Recipient Coordinator Peter Ashcroft, where we learn more about his role.

Now we go on to meet our Recipient Coordinator Peter Ashcroft. We learn more about his role and how it differs from the experiences of Janice and the donor team.

In particular, Peter discusses his interactions with patients who require a new liver. We’ll also revisit some of the discussions around organ allocation and waiting times that we started with Dr Shetty and Dr Oo in week one Step 1.15.

Peter mentions the UKELD score again too – we’ve supplied more detail on this assessment system below. Finally, he touches on the use of perfusion devices to preserve organs. We’ll hear more about this from our surgeon Mr Perera and also in Week 3.
