George Hugh-Jones QC is instructed by the Cardiff and Vale University Local Health Board on behalf of The University Hospital of Wales.
Elliot Gold is instructed by NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) which supplied the two kidneys for donation and which provides tissues and solid organs to hospitals across the UK.
