Greg Mulholland backs NHS education pack for schools about organ donation

by Steve Beasant on 4 August, 2016

August 2015, blankLiberal Democrat MP for Leeds North West Greg Mulholland has given his support to a new education pack produced by NHS Blood and Transplant, the organ donation organisation for the UK.

The pack has been created by teachers and clinicians and equips secondary school teachers with the knowledge to educate and engage key stage 3 and 4 students about organ donation.

On average, three people die every day because not enough people are prepared to say yes to organ donation.

The resources focus on real life stories of young people affected by organ donation and transplantation. The pack includes:

  • An information pack, including FAQs and a template letter to parents
  • Three lesson plans, including activities and a plenary
  • A condensed summary plan for a standalone lesson
  • Homework tasks and ideas for assemblies

Greg has encouraged teachers to download the pack, which is available at

Commenting, Greg said:

“I welcome this resource pack produced by NHS Blood and Transplant. It will be a real help to teachers who want to teach their pupils about organ donation and hold discussions about it.

“I would certainly encouraged teachers in local schools to download the pack and consider using it. I’m sure they will find it very useful, and ultimately it could help save countless lives.”
