Organ Donation Focus Group

We are interested in views from black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds

Full description:

Organ donation is important. With around 6,000 people across the UK waiting for an organ transplant, it is vital to get a good match for blood and tissue type. Some blood groups such as O or B Rhesus positive are more frequent among people from minority ethnic backgrounds.

We are investigating potential barriers, facilitators and interventions for organ donation.

We are seeking the views of people aged over 18, who self-identify as from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background. Your input will help us develop useful recommendations to share with the National Institute for Health.
