Bradford campaigner on organ donations meets doctors
7:00am Wednesday 23rd April 2014 in News
A Bradford man who is trying to encourage more Asian people to donate organs has met kidney research doctors to discuss his campaign. Nadeem Butt (pictured) is making a documentary highlighting the shortage of organ donations, which he plans to distribute to hospitals. He recently attended a Yorkshire and the Humber Transplant Forum in Wakefield, organised by Dr John Stoves, a Renal Physician at Bradford Teaching Hospitals.
Mohammed Rafique Butt, whose kidney transplant last November inspired his friend Nadeem to launch his campaign, gave a presentation at the event. Also giving a talk was Mohammed Islam, chairman of the Bradford and Airedale Kidney Patients Association, who received a kidney from his brother in last year.
