An organ donation expert has expressed his joy at the record high number of transplant operations carried out in the UK during 2012-13.
It is very gratifying to note that we have performed over 4,000 transplants in 2012/13 for the first time ever in a single year.
This builds on the sustained effort of many people to successfully achieve the target of a 50 percent increase in deceased donors in five years set by the Organ Donation Taskforce.
