Altnagelvin ICU receive kind donation from Organ Donation Committee


Organ Donation Tea Set to ICU Altnagelvin

Chair of the Western Trust and Organ Donation Committee Dr Tom Frawley recently presented a tea set Altnagelvin Intensive Care Unit (ICU), on behalf of the Committee, for use in the relatives room.

Tom also presented ‘heart in their hand keyrings’ to ICU. The keepsake heart can be placed in the loved one’s hand when saying goodbye and the matching keepsake is taken home as a beautiful reminder of the connection shared. The Northern Ireland Organ donation team have been giving these to donor families as a keepsake for the past two years. The invaluable positive feedback from donor families has prompted us to be able to offer these keyrings to the next of kin of all bereaved families within the unit.
