2015 National Kidney Transplant Service Annual Report

Friday November 25, 2016

On Friday November 25th 2016, Minister for Health Simon Harris, T.D., officially launched the 2015 Annual Report for Ireland’s National Kidney Transplant Service at Beaumont Hospital.

The 2015 Annual Report shows that kidney transplants performed at Beaumont are functioning 3 years longer than their European counterparts. As part of the Collaborative European Transplant Study, based at The University of Heidelberg, data was collected from over 400 transplant centres across Europe over a 30 year period. In the European transplant centres surveyed, 50% of all the kidneys transplanted are still functioning after 11 years. However, in patients transplanted at Beaumont Hospital, 50% of kidneys transplanted are still functioning after 14 years.

In other positive news, Beaumont Hospital is on course to reach a 50% increase in living donor transplant activity this year, with 46 living donor transplants performed since the start of 2016, up from 33 in total last year. It’s projected that a total of 50 living donor transplants will be completed by year end.

The directorate management team would like to acknowledge that these achievements would not be possible without the multidisciplinary and organisational wide support and dedication to this national service
