WE SAY.

octors make difficult decisions each day - it's part of their job.

DBut today, reading how doctors and their teams at the University of Hospital of Wales in Cardiff cared for little Teddy - Britain's youngest ever organ donor - the anguish of their work is laid bare.

To cope with the demands of caring for a tiny, dying baby, ensuring his heartbroken parents are fully supported and the ethics of organ donation for one so young are met is such a tough, tough call.

But the professional way they dealt with this is clear and incredibly impressive. All were in the best, most careful and caring hands, just as it should be.

And if this helps inspire confidence in the organ donation system and inspires others to agree to organ donation, then out of heartbreak comes hope. That's phenomenal.
