If I am placed on the wait list for a simultaneous kidney/pancreas

Resolved Question:

If I am placed on the wait list for a simultaneous kidney/pancreas transplant, is a subjective opinion as to my medical urgency by my transplant doctors considered as one of the factors determining whether I get called as opposed to another person who has the same blood type and tissue match characteristics?
