The Human Tissue Authority (HTA) welcomes NHS Blood and Transplant’s introduction of their 3-for-1 living donor transplant scheme, launched today on World Kidney Day.

The Human Tissue Authority (HTA), on behalf of Scottish Ministers, is responsible for assessing all living organ donation cases that take place in Scotland. The HTA also considers allogeneic donation of regenerative tissue where the donor is under 16 or an adult with incapacity in Scotland.
The Human Tissue Authority’s (HTA) role in living organ donation is to ensure that there has been no reward sought or offered for the organ donation and to provide an independent check to help protect the interests of living organ donors.
