5 Live Heart Transplant

Wire Free originated and produced an all-day Outside Broadcast for 5 Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. We talked to patients waiting for heart transplants, those who have had special pumps installed to help them live longer, a woman who had a heart lung transplant and a mother who had taken the difficult decision to donate her child’s organs. We also went into the operating theatre to see a heart operation. We will be following up some of those patients in coming weeks. Patients talking to 5 Live.
