Covid-19 QUOD Update

Due to the increasing challenges in the context of COVID-19 in our donor hospitals, NHS Blood & Transplant Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation (NHSBT-OTDT) and the QUOD team have decided to pause all QUOD sampling in the UK until further notice.

We hope that this will reduce pressure on the workforce at these difficult times.

Specialist Nurses in Organ Donation and NORS teams are kindly requested to keep new QUOD boxes with an unbroken seal shelved until we are able to resume the sampling for QUOD.

NHSBT and QUOD thank all SN-ODs and NORS team members for their commitment and continued support.
