CALL FOR EVIDENCE – Where are our nation’s donors?


Your evidence is needed please.

The inaugural stakeholder meeting of The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Ethnicity Transplantation and Transfusion took place in Westminster on 27th March 2023. It was attended by 110 individuals, including patients, donors, families, nurses, clinicians, leaders of NHSBT and charity organisations. On that day, the Chair, Sarah Olney MP (Richmond Park) announced the launch of its inquiry into diversity, donation and delivery.

As Secretariat for the APPG, Team Margot firmly believe in fostering collaborative and inclusive discussions that drive positive change for the benefit of all. As such, we are reaching out to you today to invite your valuable contribution to this inquiry through the submission of evidence.

This call for evidence is an open invitation to individuals and organisations who possess relevant expertise, experience, or insights that might help achieve equitable access of transplant and transfusion treatments for mixed and minority ethnic patients. We are keen to gather a wide range of perspectives and data to enrich our understanding of the associated challenges and opportunities.

In particular, we wish to collect evidence from those who are instrumental in assisting patients in obtaining their treatment. We would be most grateful for your participation.
