Podcast Guest – Saving lives through organ and tissue donation (Barts Health)

On episode six of the Barts Health podcast ‘Treating You’ we spoke with Lisa Wilson, who sits on The Royal London Hospital’s organ donation committee.

Lisa has been involved in a project to create an organ donation memorial sculpture in memory of loved ones who have donated their organs.

However, the reason why Lisa sits on this committee is a very tragic one. In December 2015, Lisa’s son Tom, who was 22 years old at the time, was playing hockey when he was hit on the back of the head in a training session. Tom then suffered a brain haemorrhage and had a heart attack on the pitch.
