We are pleased to announce National Transplant Week will now be known as Organ Donation Week. This year’s Organ Donation Week will take place between Monday 4th and Sunday 10th September 2017.
Organ Donation Week 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.”
