World Kidney Day 2018

I welcome World Kidney Day 2018 and this year’s theme of Kidneys & Women’s Health: Include, Value, Empower.  As vice-chair of the parliamentary group I am happy to both promote and raise the profile of the importance of our kidneys.

The Scottish Government is to legislate for an opt-out scheme for organ donation which I welcome.

I would encourage people to consider adding their name to the Organ Donation register.
