Kidney transplants at Leicester General Hospital have been put on hold after a number of operations which were cancelled led to a review of the service.
Experts were called in after a worryingly high number of organs were declined by the hospital as it was not thought they would result in successful transplants.
The review was carried out last week by experts chosen by the NHS Blood and Transplant service.
Patients preparing for surgery were sent home following the review and will remain on hold for at least two weeks.
A daily helpline is open for affected transplant patients between 10am and 4pm on 0116 258 4116.
