Organ Donor Shortage Prompts NHS Chiefs To Issue Plea for Brits To Give a Kidney Before They Die
from The Daily Mirror
NHS chiefs facing an organ donor shortage have issued a desperate plea for Brits to give a kidney before they die. Nearly 5,000 children and adults are currently waiting for a kidney donor in the U.K., shock new figures reveal. But a huge shortage of donors means hundreds are dying every year before they get the transplant they need. Most kidney transplant patients receive an organ from a deceased donor, but living donors can also save the lives of others. Now senior officials at NHS Blood and Transplant are urging kind-hearted Brits to consider donating a kidney to a stranger.
