Institute of Transplantation

Our Transplant Services

The Newcastle Hospitals Trust is committed to helping people benefit from transplant surgery and provides outstanding transplantation services for all types of solid organs at the Freeman Hospital.

We also specialise in other forms of Transplantation such as Bone Marrow Transplantation for children and adults and Corneal Transplantation.


Cardiopulmonary (Heart and Lungs)

Our Cardiopulmonary Transplant Service is one of the most experienced centres in the world and is widely regarded as providing the UK’s premier lung transplant service with outstanding clinical outcomes that exceed international standards.

Our experts pioneered the development of double lung and non-heart beating lung transplant surgery nationally, and they have performed more cardiopulmonary transplants than anywhere else in the UK.

Our clinicians are also foremost in the field of heart assisted devices for both adults and children and we are able to discharge patients with a VAD (ventricular assisted device) due to our unique VAD at home service, enabling them to go home rather than stay in hospital to await the availability of a donor heart.
