The UK Department of Health has appointed two co-chairs to the Exteral Reference Group involved in developing the National Service Framework for renal services. The government admits "there are still problems with variable access to services and quality". It will spend £9 million ($12.6 million) this year in a bid to redress the situation. It is also developing a transplant action plan with the aim of doubling the number of kidneys available for transplant by 2005. Over 25,000 people in England alone receive dialysis or have a transplanted kidney.
