Beggs Urges Public Uptake of Organ Donation

organ donationUlster Unionist Party East Antrim MLA Roy Beggs has urged people to consider signing up as an organ donor, during Transpant week 2015.

Mr Beggs said “As Transplant week gets underway this week, I would urge you to consider becoming an NHS Organ Donor and having the conversation with your friends and family.  A kidney transplant for example avoids the need for many hours of kidney dialysis each week and dramatically improves someone’s quality of life.   You could even make be the difference between life and death for someone within your community.”
