NHS Blood and Transplant Service

Dear Editor

♦︎ NHS Blood and Transplant Service

Calling all secondary school teachers in South Leicestershire, young people are now learning about saving lives. Blood, organ and stem cell donation are now on the key stage 3 and 4 curriculum and we have some free online resources to help you teach this important topic to 11 to 16 year olds. Your pupils can be empowered to discuss and decide about donation and we hope this will prompt conversations at home too. Visit www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/teaching-resources to find out more, we have detailed lessons and optional extra activities. You can also request a speaker, many of whom have a personal story linked to donation, to attend a school assembly.
