On ITV News West Country tonight at 6pm, we look at kidney donations from living donors. Most "live" donations are within families but there are a small number of altruistic donors who donate one of their kidneys to a person they don't know who's waiting on the transplant list.
Derriford Hospital in Plymouth is one of the pioneers of this type of transplant. Our Health Correspondent Jacquie Bird has been to watch one - watch her full report on tonight's programme.
