SOS (Swedish National Board for Health and Welfare) rejects calls for more transplant centres:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Swedish National Board for Health and Welfare (SOS) has declared that the country has no need of further transplant centres. It claims that an increase in the number of centres would mean transplants being carried out in more places, spreading expertise too thinly and leading to higher patient risk. Citing studies which prove that larger centres are more efficient, Nina Rehnqvist senior director at SOS was also adamant that dividing resources would lead to a decrease in care quality. There are at present two transplant centres at the university hospitals of Lund and Gothenburg.
