This year’s Organ Donation Week (previously National Transplant Week) is 5-11 September. Representatives from the KPA will be out and about at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals to encourage people to ‘sign up’ to the NHS organ donor register. We will also be emphasising the importance of discussing organ donation decisions with loved ones.
Together with clinical staff we will be celebrating those who have saved lives by donating kidneys and other organs.
On average three people die every day across the UK due to a shortage of donated organs so it is vital that we continue to raise awareness of organ donation and ensure that people know how to sign up:
