The Kidney Wales Foundation welcomes the opportunity to provide evidence to the new Petitions Committee on the vital issue of organ donation and transplantation. This invitation comes at a most opportune point as we launch our People Like Us Campaign. “People Like Us” is a radical patient centred vision for kidney services in Wales with a view to making Wales a world class provider of renal services. Over 400 people are waiting for a transplant in Wales and a crisis in organ supply faces Wales as demand increases year by year. Our campaign aims for a new transplant strategy based on: introducing legislation in Wales for presumed consent; working with partners to deliver a substantial increase in donors; and delivering a new dedicated transplant unit for Wales.
