2000 shaped celebration cake

Staff from the Centre for Surgical Innovation, Organ Repair & Transplantation on Royal Free Campus recently joined colleagues from  a host of different specialities at Royal Free London NHS Trust, transplant patients and their families to celebrate the 2000th Liver Transplant at the Royal Free.  The event was held in the Emirates Stadium hospitality suites in Highbury and provided a relaxed opportunity over refreshments for  meetings and interactions between patients, family members and staff to share their stories and experiences of the organ transplant pathway. DSIS staff contribute across a range of clinical and academic activities within the Royal Free Liver Transplant Services. In the afternoon, the floor was opened up to patients and their carers, many of whom provided inspirational insights into how transplantation has been able to help them.
