Abstract

Several patients are dying in India because of the lack of a world-class facility for liver transplant. There had been instances of Indian patients waiting for their turn to receive an organ abroad. Organs are allotted to foreigners only when resident nationals are not suitable. Hence, with the noble thought of helping Indians waiting for organs, Global Hospital put out an advertisement to benefit end-stage liver disease patients and then sought registration of patients. The Global Hospital is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Global Hospital doctors involved in liver transplantations are well trained in the UK. The hospital follows the King’s College protocol for liver transplants. To enlighten the public and doctors about the availability of the facility, we advertised in newspapers. As a result we received several inquiries from patients and doctors. There is no need for the hospital to promote anything unethical. We will do everything in good faith.
