Living Organ Donors

Late 2017 I met a wonderful woman from Lusk while out canvassing – Nicola had donated a kidney to her brother  – the Scheme which is in place for living donors excludes those who do not work outside the home from the loss of earnings compensation – I believe that this is an anomaly and on 18th January, 2018 I called on the Minister to correct it. The response was very disappointing and I told Nicola that I will pursue this – I will continue to do so!
On 19th January, I wrote to the Minister and I will continue to push for this.
Although there are probably only a small number involved it is only right that they can benefit fully from the Scheme
