Patients Celebrate 25 Year Milestone for Bone Marrow Transplant at a Nottingham Hospital

Around 500 patients, family members and staff recently attended a garden party to celebrate the silver anniversary of the first bone marrow transplant at Nottingham City Hospital.
Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) Haematology Department invited patients and their families to join staff and Professor Nigel Russell, who conducted the first bone marrow transplant at the City Campus 25 years ago.
Nottingham is now one of the largest transplant units in the UK, serving a large catchment area that includes Derby, Burton, Mansfield, Lincoln and Boston. It performs more than 140 transplants per year with a total of more than 2,000 transplants being carried out since its inception 25 years ago.
Prof Russell said: "The aim has been to develop Nottingham as a centre of excellence for bone marrow transplantation. The unit is recognised nationally and internationally for its work in the transplantation field."
It is great to hear that a Nottingham based hospital can celebrate such an anniversary.
