jmm PR Supporting Kettering General Hospital in Raising Awareness of Organ and Tissue Donation

The laws around organ donation have changed in the UK; it is now an opt-out system, rather than opt-in. This means that if you’re not in an excluded group, and have not confirmed whether you want to be a donor, it will be considered that you agree to organ donation. Although these changes came into effect in May 2020, many people are still unaware of the new law. So, we’re supporting our local hospital – Kettering General – in raising awareness of this and helping to spread the word about Organ Donation Week (7th -13th September 2020).

Lift wraps, posters and banners have been created and installed around Kettering General Hospital in an effort to increase awareness in the local community. Ultimately, you do still have a choice on whether you want to be an organ donor or not and the NHS is encouraging everyone to register their decision and share it with those close to you.

You may have spotted jmm PR’s Jacqueline in the photos throughout this post! Jacqueline visited the hospital last week to help kick-start the campaign that aims to raise awareness of organ and tissue donation and how important it is. We’re excited to also be supporting Organ Donation Week, which takes place from 7th to 13th September 2020. More details on this are to follow, but keep an eye out for the #OrganDonationWeek virtual challenge!

If you would like to do some research of your own into organ donation, and the new changes that have been made, click here for the best place to start. Be sure to keep an eye out for activities planned during Organ Donation Week and look out for hashtags to get involved on social media.
