Living Transplant Initiative (LTI)
The aim of the LTI is to increase the number of living kidney transplants among BAME communities through a targeted approach.
NHSBT commissioned NBTA to manage the Living Transplant Initiative (LTI) in October 2016.
NBTA set up a LTI Steering Group to oversee this Initiative. The Steering Group decided to allocate funding to five projects from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
An interim report was produced giving an overview of the projects and their achievements in 2018.
Four projects were funded in 2018-2019. A further three smaller projects were funded from 1 September 2018 - 31 March 2019.
For any queries about this Initiative, please contact the Kirit Modi, Chair of the NBTA LTI Steering Group (firstname.lastname@example.org) or contact the lead person for each project directly.
