British Transplant Games - Disruptions to Service

NLL Latest News

What are the British Transplant Games? 

The Games help deliver Transplant Sports aim to demonstrate the benefits of transplantation whilst increasing public awareness of the need for more people to join the NHS Organ Donation Register and discuss their wishes with their families. They also seek to thank and celebrate donor families and the gift of life.
