The inspirational story of Jill Patterson saving lives after she died through organ donation has been installed within the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust to help families who may find themselves facing the death of a loved one to consider whether organ donation is the right thing for them.

Organ Donation is a special gift and one that can never be underestimated.

Jill’s family were so pleased to see her story board in place in the ICU relatives waiting area her sister said ‘We really appreciate being afforded the opportunity and the time you all gave us to see Jill’s story board, it was a lovely experience which my mum is especially grateful  for and we as a family  are so  proud to have a visible memory for others to see what Jill  contributed to life by her death , and hopefully give strength too others in difficult times of decision making ‘

You can help save lives by signing up to the NHS Organ Donor Register at www.organdonation.nhs.uk or call 0300 123 23 23 and it is really important to remember if you do take the decision to sign up to the organ donation register that you discuss it with your family about your wishes.
