HC Deb 03 March 1994 vol 238 cc847-8W
Mr. Churchill

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many kidney patients died in 1992 while awaiting a suitable donor organ.

Mr. Sackville

There is no information about the number of people awaiting a kidney transplant who died of kidney disease during 1992. Kidney failure is fatal unless treated with dialysis or transplantation. People on dialysis awaiting a transplant may live for many years and may die from causes other than kidney failure.
