Synopsis: 
Informed consent is critical to encourage and facilitate living donor renal transplants. Actual donors are the people best suited to identify the positives and the pitfalls of kidneys' donation. Kidney donors from June 2006 to March 2011 were surveyed.

ABSTRACT

Objectives:  To determine issues from actual donors in our local programme which may have a psychological impact on kidney donation.   

Methods: Living donors between June 2006 and March 2011 were given an un-standardized questionnaire. Of the 72 donors, 43 responded and information about their demographics, their motivation to donate and their transplant experiences were collated.
