This year's National Transplant Week has now come to an end.
Many thanks to all those who organised or took part in activities to help raise awareness of organ donation during the Week. All over the country people went to great efforts – from running half marathons, and holding art competitions, to hosting information stalls and giving talks. We are very grateful for all the support we received.
This year we focused not just on encouraging more people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register but also wanted to highlight the importance of passing on the message that you've registered to your friends and family
An exciting aspect of this year's campaign was our film competition. We encouraged amateur film makers to create a short film on organ donation to help spread the word, and you can still view the winning and shortlisted films here.
We achieved masses of media coverage in local, regional and national media. This included a fantastic package on ITV’s This Morning on Friday 13 July featuring a transplant recipient and our own director of Organ Donation, Sally Johnson, who talked about the importance of talking to your family about your organ donation wishes:
Don't forget you can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news and developments throughout the year.
Let's carry on working together and give hope to the 7,500 currently waiting for a transplant!
