A huge thank you goes to Clare Morphy, Andrew Topping and Rachel Seligman in the Scottish Organ Donation Team who have worked hard this year to promote organ donation within the LBTQ+ communities.
Supported by some members of the wider Scottish team, the trio opened accounts on social media and attended all the Scottish Pride events, much of this in their own time at weekends. Please could colleagues help to publicise and follow them:
- Facebook Donate With Pride
- Twitter @Donatewithpride
- Instagram donatewithpride
Dispelling misconceptions about donation within the LGBTQ+ communities as well as signing people up to the NHS Organ Donor Register has been a very successful awareness-raising initiative. Some of their social media posts reached over 6,000 people.
Well done to each of them – their tireless work is much appreciated.
