Between the 3rd and 9th of September this week, the NHS is leading its annual Organ Donation Week campaign.
Andrew reports, "Organ Donation Week is an opportunity to raise awareness of the need for more organ donors and encourages people to discuss the issue with family and friends.
"NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) state that most people don’t discuss organ donation, which results in many donation opportunities being squandered. It is, therefore, important that organ donation is talked about with those closest to us, because family support is crucial to donation."
