(1) Suspended means the patient has been temporarily removed from the list. This happens for such reasons as being too ill to undergo the operation or being away on holiday. (2) NHS Blood and Transplant do not hold historical transplant list data with primary renal disease prior to 2005, therefore the transplant list data shown is for the last seven years.
