Harefield Transplant Appeal 2018 Thanks to you, we exceeded our target to raise over £550,000 to support Harefield's world-class Transplant Programme, so our doctors and nurses can treat more people in need of life-saving transplants In 2018, we launched an appeal to raise £500,00 to buy Organ Care Systems at Harefield Hospital - the UK’s largest and most experienced centre for heart and lung transplants. In 2017/18, the team performed 33 heart transplants, five combined heart and lung transplants and 59 lung transplants. What did we fund? Organ Care Systems, like this one, keep donated hearts and lungs viable for up to four times longer than the traditional on-ice method. This means donated organs can come from hospitals further away, arrive in better condition and give medical staff longer to prepare for and perform life-saving surgery. Thank you to everyone who has supported this appeal and helped us to make a huge difference to patients awaiting life-changing transplants. We have continued our pledge to raise funds for Organ Care Systems Heart, which are still not funded by the NHS. To read more about our appeal or, to donate or fundraise, please click here.
