More cystic fibrosis patients would live for longer if the NHS accepted more donor lungs and directed them to "those most in need", according to a specialist doctor.
Professor Andrew Fisher from the Institute of Transplantation, Freeman Hospital and Newcastle University, explained:
Successful lung transplantation can transform the life of someone with very severe lung disease due to cystic fibrosis.
By increasing the acceptance of donor lungs that are currently available and directing them to those most in need, we will have the chance to make sure all those with cystic fibrosis who need a lung transplant get the opportunity to benefit from it.
