Liver transplant support line
The liver transplant support line provides a telephone network of volunteers, former liver transplant patients and carers.
Our volunteers offer emotional support, non-medical advice and information to patients, their carers and their families to cope with liver transplant.
Telephone befriending is a regular telephone service to support people and help build a more positive way of life by offering:
- an opportunity to share experiences and to feel valued and heard
- contact between current and former liver transplant patients, carers and their families
- support for people who feel socially isolated.
People in need of support can be referred to the service by:
- health care professionals, eg your GP
- social work services
- support groups
- family, friends or self-referral.
We aim to match people with similar experiences and common interests wherever possible. Once we have identified a possible volunteer, you will be contacted by the project coordinator.
The Liver Transplant Support Line (Scotland) is a partnership between the Scottish Liver Transplant Unit in Edinburgh and the British Red Cross.
