Highlighting our Nephrology and Renal Transplantation Service during Organ Donation Awareness Week - 23 to 30 April

Thursday April 14, 2022


Organ Donor Awareness Week takes place next week (23rd to 30th April). With up to 600 people in Ireland awaiting organ transplants, Organ Donor Awareness Week aims to highlight the benefits of carrying a donor card.

This week we would like to highlight the tremendous service that our Nephrology and Renal Transplantation teams in Beaumont Hospital provide to the renal patients in their care. Despite the disruption the Pandemic caused (and continues to cause) to our patients and the wider hospitals in 2020 the National Kidney Transplant Service performed 139 kidney transplants last year of which 35 were from living donors.

That's a lot of people whose lives have been transformed from kidney donation. So listen to the message of the week and carry an Organ Donation Card.
