How long-term follow-up of renal transplant patients should be structured is an important question. The increasing numbers of long-term transplant recipients place an increasing strain on the transplant programs that follow them, and many patients live far from their transplant centre. In this observational study, patients who had their care transferred to a satellite (non-transplant) centre had similar renal function and management of cardiovascular risk factors as patients who continued to be followed in the transplant centre.
