Tissue Donation and Dying Matters Event
We will be hosting a Tissue and Dying Matters Awareness event on Monday 8th May 2017 from 10am - 2pm at NHS Blood and Transplant, Filton, Bristol. This event is an opportunity to get people talking about tissue donation and to encourage individuals to talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement.
As part of end of life plans, it is important to consider what a person's wishes are, what is important to them, what they want to happen at the end of their life and to ensure that they communicate that to their loved ones; this includes tissue donation. It is about making it easier for those left behind so that they are not left with having to make a decision at such a sensitive time.
