This is Organ Donation WeekSeptember 5, 2016 // No Comments
This year’s Organ Donation Week is taking place this week Monday 5th and Sunday 11th September 2016. The event provides an opportunity for the organ donation and transplant community to promote organ donation nationally and locally, whilst highlighting the importance of organ donation and celebrating those who have saved lives.
Sally Johnson, Director of Organ Donation and Transplantation said “We hope people across the UK will get behind the week and the opportunity it presents to focus people’s attention on organ donation. People waiting for transplants depend on people being willing to donate their organs and sadly on average three people die every day across the UK due to a shortage of donated organs.”
