Mum denied daughter's kidney11th April 2008
Rachel Leake needs a kidney transplant but has been informed by health service authorities that she cannot have her deceased daughter's organs.
Mrs Leake's daughter Laura died of an asthma attack and her last request was that her organs were used to help her mother. However, her organs were given to people at the head of the NHS waiting lists. Adrian McNeil, the chief executive of the Human Tissue Authority, stated that "all requests of this nature were being turned down while an ethical review of the procedure" was underway.
