"A couple of weeks after Denise’s passing, I received a letter from the organ donation team informing me that five different lives had been saved from Denise’s organ donation."

"If you could see Ben and the difference his transplant has made to both his life and ours you would really see what a truly amazing gift this is."

"In July 2010 a nurse told me that a heart had become available. It was very surreal, I wasn't afraid; in fact I was overjoyed as I knew this was the only way I was going to survive."

Organ donation - Public attitudes and stakeholder engagement in Northern Ireland 2013

Organ donation - Public attitudes and stakeholder engagement in Northern Ireland 2013 cover

In June 2013, a representative sample of the public responded to a survey about thier attitudes towards organ donation. At the same time, a process of stakeholder engagement began, which involved 16 discussion groups with key stakeholders as requested by the Health Minister (including organ donation charities, those on the transplant aiting list, transplant recipients, donor families and Health and Social Care staff).

Discussion groups took place between June and August 2013 and proformas were also completed. The central purpose of this public and stakeholder engagement process was to inform the direction of public information campaign that will be developed by the Public Health Agency (PHA).
