NHS Ayrshire and Arran has been encouraging staff to sign up to be an organ donor.

Only 52.3 per cent of people in Scotland are on the NHS organ donor register and Ayrshire and Arran currently has one of the lowest signup rates in the country.

Many of NHS Ayrshire and Arran’s Emergency Department staff are on the organ donation register, including their Joint Medical Director and ED Consultant, Crawford McGuffie.
