    No. Non-British citizens have to prove they are entitled to NHS treatment, let alone a transplant. There are hundreds if not thousands waiting for kidneys already.

    Agreed with earlier poster this obviously seems like a foriegn speculative question!

    You will not be offered a transplant from outside the uk or not a uk national.

    For general NHS treatment you would have to prove entitlement.

    So I think the answe to your question is No.

    I agree with previous replies, there is a long long waiting list for people living in the UK and they are entitled to a transplant, unfortunately many die before a donor can be found. No entitlement, no treatment.
