Wow, great stuff, and thank you for everyone who attended and presented.
The organ Donor Taskforce set a target of a 50% increase in organ donors over 5 years - finish date for the five years is the 31st March 2013. The Midlands is on track to meet this target! That is something we should all be proud of.
