Transplant Centre Staffing Levels Questionnaire

1. Introduction: In this survey we are exploring current staffing levels in transplant centres across the UK and your views on optimum staffing levels. This survey is supported by the BSBMTCT, UK Stem Cell Strategic Forum, NHSBT, Anthony Nolan, BSH and RCPath. The results of this survey will be used to benchmark staffing levels across all transplant units and develop standardised guidance on minimal staffing requirements to match activity levels. The recommendations will be particularly useful when planning for service expansion and business cases to provide adequate staffing, ensuring patient safety, staff effectiveness and the right work-life balance to prevent burnout. This survey will need to be completed by Transplant Centre Directors/Clinical Leads, Matrons, Laboratory and Apheresis Managers. You may also need the support of other members of your team to answer some of the questions. If your unit also provides ATMPs you can provide staffing information for those as well. If you require any support, or need help in completing the survey, please contact Eleni Tholouli on
