National Transplant Week 2013
This year's National Transplant Week has now come to an end. Many thanks to everyone who organised or took part in activities to help raise awareness of organ donation during the Week.
You can still visit www.transplantweek.co.uk to find out about the events and activities that took place. Here you'll also find real-life case studies of people who have been affected by organ donation, and a fascinating blog about working as a specialist nurse for organ donation.
Watch the remarkable films made by Homeland's David Harewood, Richard Branson, Sky News presenter Kay Burley and Emmerdale's Wil Johnson and be inspired by their intimate and relaxed approach to having that all-imporant organ donation conversation. From the site you can also watch the winning and shortlisted films in our 'Organ Donation Through a Lens' competition.
We want to encourage more people than ever before to join the NHS Organ Donor Register and to talk to their close family and friends about their donation wishes. So let's carry on working together and give hope to all those currently waiting for a transplant!
