Assessment of Resources for Renal Transplantation in the United Kingdom
Lancet. 1985 Jul 27; 2(8448): 195-197.
Statistics on treatment rates for patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) show that the number of ESRD patients per million population in the United Kingdom has increased slowly in recent years. The British Transplantation Society issued questionnaires in 1983 and 1984 to determine the number of patients transplanted, the number of suitable patients, and the facilities needed to enable all suitable patients to receive treatment. While there is a high transplant rate, the percentage of ESRD patients on dialysis is low, and there is a "socially unacceptable deficit" with respect to treatment of diabetics and the elderly.
