Organ donation programme filmed
A BBC documentary on organ donation which was partly filmed in one of the borough's hospitals airs on Tuesday.

The series, Lifegivers, looks at the world of organ and blood donation and is co-presented by ex-Eastenders star Nadia Sawalha.

Ultraviolet lights will be installed in a hospital after research showed that they can reduce the spread of tuberculosis by two thirds.
Some wards in St Mary's Hospital, in Praed Street, Paddington will have the lights introduced based on a medical journal's findings.
Infection rates for TB are particularly high in places where people are crowded together, like hospitals, shelters and prisons.
