Blues pay visit to transplant ward

Photographs: Graeme Sharp and Graham Stuart called into see transplant patients at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital to mark National Transplant Week

TRANSPLANT patients were paid a surprise visit this week as Everton Football Club Ambassadors Graeme Sharp and Graham Stuart called into the Royal Liverpool University Hospital to mark National Transplant Week.

The fans' favourites visited patients on Ward 6B and Ward 9A who have recently received kidney transplants as well as patients who are undergoing dialysis; a procedure which cleans blood if the kidneys aren't working properly.

Graeme Sharp, Everton's leading post war goal scorer and club Ambassador, said:- "It's been really inspiring for us to come here today and meet these patients who have benefitted recently from the kindness of others. Signing up to the organ donation register only takes a few minutes but can help to save lives."

The Royal Liverpool University Hospital is the regional referral centre for renal transplants; the transfer of a healthy kidney to the person with little or no kidney function.  Dr Peter Hampshire, clinical lead for organ donation at the Royal, said:- "It's fantastic to have Everton in the Community come and visit transplant patients. We want to get as many people as possible talking about organ donation and joining the organ donor register.   We also want people to discuss their decision with their families, so that their relatives know what they would want to happen if they were in a situation where donation is possible.  Unfortunately 3 people die every day while waiting for a transplant in the UK. You could help save someone else's life after your death. You may not realise it but one organ donor can potentially save up to 8 lives."

National Transplant Week aims to raise the awareness of the benefits of organ and tissue donation, and to encourage people to sign up for the organ donation register sooner rather than later.

Everton in the Community works with the Royal Liverpool University Hospital throughout the year to support and deliver a number of health promotion campaigns which work to raise awareness of public health issues as well as creating a healthier Liverpool for all.
