We welcome the launch of new data from NHS Blood and Transplant, released today, and the news that more than 36,000 people are now alive thanks to kidney donation and transplantation. These numbers are testament to the generosity of deceased and living donors, record levels of public support for organ donation, and hard work by the NHS. However despite the numbers moving in the right direction, progress remains very slow and much more needs to be done if we are to improve survival rates for people living with kidney disease. Every day one person will die whilst waiting for a kidney transplant and this simply has to change.
Kidney Care UK is committed to working with policy makers on behalf of kidney patients and their families to improve on this.
