The Kidney Wales Foundation says the current system is outdated and needs reform. They say that one person dies every week in Wales waiting for an organ transplant.
– Roy J Thomas, Chief Executive of Kidney Wales
The UK is one of the lowest donor rate countries in Europe. The new Human Transplantation (Wales) Bill is a new progressive law. We are proud to have led the debate in favour of this law.
– Melanie Wagner, who received a new kidney in 2010
Waiting for an organ is an extremely difficult time for anyone - it is like being on death row and it seems as if you are being further punished for being ill. Mentally, it is cruel for the patient and the caring family.
