Organ Transplant Transportation

Wed, Oct 18th 2017 at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Alf Doran


We all learnt something tonight as Alf told us of the logistics in organising the transportation of human organs for transplantation. This is a very time critical operation - for example a heart has a maximum of 4 hours from "chest to chest" 

Alf told us of what is involved in getting not just the organ but also the patient, their family and the surgical teams together to carry out these vital life saving operations.

Andy Greenyer gave an excellent vote of thanks commending Alf for his 40 of service throughtout his career,
