All this week ITV is running a big campaign to raise awareness of organ donation. This week on ITV West Country we are hearing both from donor families and the patients whose lives have been transformed by organ donations, as well as the health professionals involved.
523 people in the South West are currently waiting for a transplant. On tonight's West Country News at 6, we visit the Transplant Duty Office in Bristol, whose job it is to make sure organs get to the right donor in time; hey have to move super fast at a moment's notice.
If you would like to find out more about ITV's From the Heart Campaign, there is lots of information here.
