Transplant and Life

Transplant and Life

22 November 2016 - 20 May 2017

 

A patient revealing a bandage on their stomachA programme of events and commissioned artworks exploring organ transplantation. Artists Tim Wainwright and John Wynne, working with patients at the Royal Free and Harefield hospitals, use sound, photography and video to reveal intimate patient experiences and bring the sights and sounds of patients into the museum, a place usually associated with specimens, hardware, and clinical heroes.

This exhibition gave voice to the patient experience and raised awareness of the importance of transplantation and the challenges surrounding it. Every day around three people who could have benefited from a transplant die because there aren’t enough organ donors. We need more people to agree to organ donation.

It only takes two minutes to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register, so don’t delay, do it today. And don’t forget to tell your family that you want them to support your decision.

This includes the stories of patients, live donors, families and medical professionals who have participated in this project.
