Who can help?

There are a number of dedicated teams within NHSBT who can provide a specialised response to queries. Where the remit is outside that of R&D, our office is well placed to link enquiries to the appropriate team.

Common points of contact include:

Organ Donation and Transplantation (ODT)
For enquires about research in Organ Donation and Transplantation, contact the ODT Research Manager, Maria McGee. Research that requires ODT resources will need to go through the ODT research approval process. Early engagement with the ODT Research Manager is key to ensuring all approvals are in place and that research can go ahead.

Whilst NHSBT endeavours to minimise waste and process failure in the clinical supply chain, inevitably there is some donated material that is surplus to clinical requirement or unsuitable for therapeutic use. These materials can be used for R&D within NHSBT, and supplied to the wider NHS and authorised external organisations for specific uses. All initial enquires should be sent to: nciadmin@nhsbt.nhs.uk
Statistics and Clinical Studies

Research that requires ODT resources will need to go through the ODT research approval process.

The Statistics and Clinical Studies team is headed by Professor Dave Collett and the team supports:

1. The design and analysis of studies in organ and tissue donation, retrieval and transplantation
2. Observational studies in blood donation and transfusion medicine
3. Clinical audit of blood and transplantation services

For general statistical enquiries please contact Dave Collett and for Clinical Audit enquiries please contact Karen Sutcliffe
