Receiving a deceased donor kidney

Information about the deceased donor list

Even though it is called a waiting list a kidney is not always given to the person who has been waiting the longest. This list is like a pool of people who might be offered a kidney from a deceased donor.

Kidneys from non-directed donors are also allocated through the deceased donor list. Non-directed donors are people who are alive and decide to donate one of their kidneys to someone they don’t know.
