Jamaica journey to treat disease

Marc Clancy, Consultant Renal Transplant Surgeon, picked up the NHSGGC Chairman’s Awards Global Citizenship Award last year for his pioneering work in Jamaica.

Marc is passionate about ensuring that people with chronic kidney disease have access to transplantation wherever possible, as this treatment provides the best outcome in terms of survival and quality of life.

He was part of a team of charity workers from Transplant Links who travelled to Jamaica to perform the first renal transplant this century in Jamaica with the aim of setting up a self sustaining transplant programme over there.

Marc has also arranged for a newly appointed transplant co-ordinator to spend time in Glasgow as part of role development.
