Transplant Assessment/Transplant Grant Scheme
We provide financial assistance towards incidental expenses (accommodation, meals and transport) incurred to members and their families who must travel for transplant assessment/ transplant.
What is it worth?
The transplant assessment grant is €150 for assessments carried out in Dublin and €300 for assessments carried out in the UK. The transplant grant is €850 for members attending the Mater Hospital in Dublin, and €1,200 for those attending the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, UK.
How do I apply?
In order to avail of the transplant assessment grant, a copy of the original letter from Newcastle/Mater stating the date and time of appointment for assessment must be sent to CFI. CFI should be contacted directly by a member of the CF/Transplant team or by the next-of-kin of the PWCF for the transplant grant.
