Organ and tissue donation

At Queen's Hospital, Burton, we are keen to promote awareness of Organ and Tissue Donation and encourage everyone to consider joining the Organ Donor Register (ODR) and discuss their wishes about Donation with their families.

Our Specialist Nurse for Organ Donation is Jill Kelsall and Clinical Lead is Dr Ian Poxon, a Consultant Anaesthetist in the Trust. We have a dedicated Organ Donation Committee Chaired by Mr William Saunders OBE, which meets on a quaterly basis. The aim of our Committee is to support Donation and promote awareness within our local community. Key members include a donor family member and transplant recipient which helps to give us insight into different perspectives of how Donation touches the lives of so many people.

For further information about Organ and Tissue Donation and how to register on the ODR, please follow the website links.
