Authority chair Shirley Harrison said: “Just three years after the HTA began regulating living organ donation, it is remarkable that so many donors have come forward.
“This is heartening news at a time traditionally associated with giving and goodwill.
“The number of living donors is rising all the time. Now, one in three of all kidney transplants come from living people.”
“Living donation is a truly extraordinary act. I would like to pay tribute to the generosity and altruism of all living organ donors who, despite the risks involved, have chosen to donate an organ.”
She said the HTA had a clear system to ensure the interests of the donor are protected.
