In the UK, circulatory death (DCD) kidney transplant activity has increased rapidly, but marked regional variation persists. We report how increased DCD kidney transplant activity influenced wait-listed outcomes for a single centre. Between 2002/03 and 2011/12, 430 (54%) DCD and 361 (46%) DBD kidney-only transplants were performed in the Cambridge Transplant Centre, with a higher proportion of DCD donors fulfilling expanded criteria status (41% DCD vs 32% DBD; $\small \textit{P}$=0.01). Compared to UK outcomes, where the proportion of DCD:DBD kidney transplants performed is lower (25%; $\small \textit{P}$<0.0001), listed patients at our centre waited less time f...
