Organ donation programme filmed

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

Doctors and kidney transplant patients at the Royal Free Hampstead, in Pond Street, Camden told programme-makers about their experiences and let camera crews follow them into the operating theatre.

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

Lighting tackles TB

Most Read

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.

Step out for skin research

Doctors, nurses and patients on a dermatology unit are encouraging others to join a fund-raising walk for skin research.

Fifteen members of the team based in the Royal Free Hampstead, in Pond Street, Camden will take part in the walk, in Kensington Gardens on May 10.

Funds will go into research into eczema, psoriasis, skin cancer and the study of aging.

Walkers must raise a minimum of �20 and can register at www.britishskinfoundation.org.uk.
