I was proud to support Organ Donation Week.
Every day someone in the UK dies waiting for a transplant, due to a shortage of people donating. At present, there are more than 7,000 people waiting for a transplant. However, as only 1,400 people die (only 1 percent) in circumstances where organ donation is possible, every donation is precious and can make such a difference.
In Tynemouth 13 people are waiting for a transplant.
You can register your organ donation decision either online at www.organdonation.nhs.uk or via the NHS APP.
