This site is an information source primarily for health care professionals and other interested parties. The ODT site provides information relevant to the UK for:
- organ donation and retrieval
- selection of patients for transplantation
- allocation policies
- outcomes after transplantation
A moving new book of letters written to transplant patients to their donors and donor relatives has been launched to show the positive side of organ donation and encourage more people to sign up to the organ register.
Thank you for life is published by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) for NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) with support from the Department of Health and highlights the long-standing gratitude felt by those who receive donated organs.
Proceeds from sales of the book will be used to promote organ registration. For further information, please see attached document or visit: http://bookshop.rcplondon.ac.uk/details.aspx?e=324
