At present the team visits the wards weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays after first consulting with the Transplant Co-ordinators to obtain names of those patients who would like a visit and those who do not wish to have a visit or for any other reason. The visits are usually limited to not more than two members per patient to ensure the latter do not get too tired. The team try to help resolve any non-clinical anxieties, demonstrate the obvious benefits of the procedure and offer re-assurance where necessary. Any clinical concerns are outside the remit of the team but are reported back to the Transplant Co-ordinators if appropriate. The team can be contacted via info@alta.org.uk.
