Working closely with the Associate Medical Director for Organ Donation and Transplantation the N-CLOD will provide dynamic and proactive clinical leadership to the UK Network of Clinical Leads for Organ Donation (CLODs). Together they will work to support the delivery of Organ Donation and Transplantation UK wide Strategy, which sets out our ambition to make the UK world class in organ donation and to save and improve the lives of our citizens through increased organ donation rates. 

The N-CLOD will lead the CLOD team in ensuring the best practice in Organ Donation is embedded into every area of clinical care where the potential for donation exists, including but not limited to Critical Care and Emergency Departments. As the Senior Clinical Leader for Organ Donation they will provide expert advice and guidance to the ODT Senior Management Team, helping to shape future policy and contribute to the development of organisational ambitions in relation to organ donation. They will lead on the production and maintenance of national guidelines associated with the organ donation pathway and in doing so will ensure that all legal, ethical and operational issues that could impact upon the effectiveness of these guidelines are reflected.

To achieve the vision of being world class in organ donation and transplantation the National CLOD will be required to work in close partnership with multiple stakeholders both within NHSBT and across the NHS.
