Heart to Heart for Transplant Week

It’s National Transplant Week, and I’ve been at the brand new Pinderfields Hospital hearing from Specialist Nurse Marion Schogmaiglio, Rebecca Smith and Dr. Hugh O’Beirne from the hospital’s transplant team.

The team have tough conversations every day with relatives facing the most difficult of times. It’s never easy to talk about death, and most of us have never had a conversation about organ donation, which means our loved ones don’t have any idea what our wishes would be in that situation.

So this week – National Transplant Week – why not have a ‘heart to heart’ about organ donation with your friends and family and think about signing the organ donor register. Find information about organ donation, and some tips for starting your ‘heart to heart’ here.
