November 2020
Blood and Organ Doning: Altruism or Insurance?

Science, theology and the Covid-19 pandemic is the subject of a series of virtual debates being hosted online by Norwich Cathedral.

As Norwich Cathedral prepares to host the Natural History Museum's famous Diplodocus cast Dippy from January 2021, we invite you to watch the Science in the Café series of conversations this October and November on Norwich Cathedral’s YouTube Channel.

Session Two - entitled Blood and Organ Doning: Altruism or Insurance? - is now available to view on this webpage.

It features the following speakers:
Prof. Mark Wilkinson, from Norwich Medical School 
Dr Lorna Williamson OBE, formerly Medical and Research Director of NHS Blood and Transplant
The Revd Canon Peter Doll, Canon Librarian at Norwich Cathedral

The discussion develops the idea of the individual’s responsibility to contribute to resource in a personal way, focussing especially on organ donation.

Ahead of watching the video, you can download Prof Wilkinson's slides here and Dr Williamson's slides here.

If you have any questions you would like to ask after watching the video, you are very welcome to email science@cathedral.org.uk
