Students Programme: Organ donation – saving and transforming lives

Meeting Room 1A, Belfast Waterfront, 2 Lanyon Place, Belfast, BT1 3WH

Samuel Newman, Specialist Nurse (Organ Donation), Guy's & St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust London Organ Donation Services Team

Over 50,000 transplant recipients are alive in the UK today thanks to the generosity of organ donors and their families. However, there is an urgent shortage of organs and three people die every day while waiting for a lifesaving transplant.


Organ donation is an important part of end-of-life-care and should be offered to all families of potential donors. This session will explore the enablers and barriers to donation, the proposed legislation supporting an opt-out registration system, and the important role of the Specialist Nurse – Organ Donation.
