Midlands Organ Donation Services Team

The Midlands Organ Donation Services Team provide services to a population of 8.8 million. Geographically, the team covers Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire, Worcestershire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire, and Shropshire. Within this geographical area, the team provides a service for 16 NHS trusts. 

Within these trusts there are both adult and paediatric intensive care units including general intensive care and speciality units such as cardio thoracic, neurosurgical, trauma and burns. In addition, there are neonatal units, one of which is currently included in the potential donor audit (PDA). There are 3 designated regional trauma centres as well as many busy emergency departments. There are 5 trusts that encompass transplant centres including heart, lungs, liver, intestinal and kidneys covering both adult and paediatric transplantation. Two of the national organ retrieval teams are also within region.

Archived reports

As part of the PDA, patients aged over 80 years of age and those who did not die on a critical care unit or an emergency department are not audited nationally and are therefore excluded from the majority of this report. In addition, some information from this time period may be outstanding due to late reporting and difficulties obtaining patient notes. Donations not captured by the PDA will still be included in the data supplied from the accompanying Referral Record or from the UK Transplant Registry, as appropriate.

Some percentages in these reports were calculated using small numbers and should therefore be interpreted with caution.

The table containing Gold/Silver/Bronze/Amber/Red shading provides a comparison with UK targets. The targets specific to each of the nine key metrics are displayed on and above the funnel plots throughout Section 3 of the Midland team detailed full report. Definitions and data, table and figure descriptions can also be found in the detailed full report.
