Organ donation - Bristol, 17 March

I'm chairing a public event will bring together people involved in organ donation and transplantation to discuss the current situation in the UK. You will have a chance to hear about the complexity of transplant coordination, the harrowing experience of waiting for and going through a transplant, as well as philosophical and moral issues surrounding organ donation.

Speakers include: Paul Arnold (Family member), Gill Hollis (Transplant recipient), Lynne Holt (Transplant Coordinator, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle), David Nix (Chairman, Donor Family Network), Dr John Troyer (Deputy Director of the Centre for Death and Society, University of Bath).

At The Watershed, 6.30pm. Full details here (PDF).
