Rotherham residents being encouraged to register as organ donors
The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Blood & Transplant are urging people to register as organ donors, claiming that a single organ donor can save up to eight lives.
The two organizations’ organ donation campaign encouraging people in Rotherham to sign the Organ Donation Register also published some stats showing how some donors helped save live in the area.
As per the stats, 19 people in Rotherham are currently waiting for a transplant, of whom all but one is waiting for someone to donate a kidney. In the past five years, a total of 15 individuals in Rotherham saved several lives by donating their organs.
During that period, 44 people have had their lives saved thanks to deceased organ donors from across the United Kingdom. Sadly, 8 people died without receiving desperately needed transplant.
Joanne Cheetham, a nurse for organ donation at Rotherham Hospital, said, “Organ donation saves lives and one organ donor can save or transform up to nine lives and even more by donating tissue as well.”
Available stats show that 8 in every 10 people agree that it is important to tell their families their views about organ donation after death, but merely a third actually tell their families about their wishes to donate organs.
