Cabinet Notes: The Minister of Health reported that two successful kidney transplants were conducted at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center (SLBMC) on Monday and Tuesday, February 6 and 7, 2023.

He pointed out that there could have been more transplants but that donors do not come forward; the Minister urged family and friends whose siblings and loved ones are presently on dialysis, to step forward as donors.

Since the SLBMC has now exceeded 10 transplants, the hospital is encouraged to sell the service to OECS countries without the expertise.
