The Cystic Fibrosis Trust called on NHS Blood and Transplant to develop a new "lung allocation system" that balances the needs to medical urgency and long-term outcomes.
There is concern across the cystic fibrosis community about equity in lung allocation.

A donated organ will not currently necessarily reach the most in-need candidate anywhere in the country.
