Transplant Café for Patients & Carers

Transplant Café for Patients & Carers

What is it?

Our ‘café’ is a space to meet with others with similar experiences and to share and gather useful information. It may give you some time to think about the impact of your medical journey alongside having a hot drink in a friendly, supportive atmosphere.

What will it involve?

Meeting with other people within our transplant service who may be having similar experiences to you. Hearing some helpful information. Or just joining us for a hot drink and an informal chat. A clinical psychologist will be present to facilitate the conversation and to help with any questions.

Who, Where, When?

Anyone who has had a heart or lung transplant or a VAD procedure is welcome. The café will usually be held in Seminar room 1 on Level 4 in the Institute for Transplantation. Let us know what you think.  Next Café: Thursday 8 August at 10 – 12 noon
