Organ Donation Link Nurses

  Organ donor nurses Andrea Colby (shown at left) and Justine Sinclair from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) are the main contacts at Lakes DHB for families wanting to discuss organ or tissue donations.

Their roles include: 

  • educating all new staff on Organ Donation.  

  • organising study day and any teaching that is required on Organ Donation.   
  •  supporting staff and coordination if required of the process of organ donation that occurs in our ICU.

  • they liaise with ODNZ about current trends and new procedures.

  • and complete the ICU Death Audit 

Andrea says each year the lives of many New Zealanders are saved and transformed through the generosity or organ and tissue donors and their families.
