Excellence in Quality and Safety …..


Supporting Overseas Patients

Undergoing surgery can be a daunting event in any situation.  When patients travel from overseas to The Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Foundation Trust we provide an international patient coordinator to ensure that everything is straight forward for patients, so they have as little to worry about as possible.  The coordinator will provide translation services, transport and will assist in finding local accommodation for family members accompanying the patient.  If you want to make an enquiry about our service please email us at  and attach any medical reports and or scan results you may have, this will enable us to deal with your enquiry more quickly.


The Patient Journey

Patients can be assured of the best possible support from the Institute of Transplantation team.  From initial assessment to potential surgery and thereafter, established NHS care pathways will be followed.
