Letter Writing Exchange Improvement
In March 2018 a Donor Families Australia (DFA) delegation of 4 committee members met with the Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) CEO and an OTA officer in a meeting room within Sydney Airport. The OTA CEO invited DFA to a discussion on letter writing.
Some three years on this joint communique between the DFA and OTA on letter writing is a significant document involving Donor Families, Recipients and the OTA . A truly consultative approach has been taken to put in place a letter writing system that is based on the needs of Donor Families and Recipients.
Paramount to all these improvements is the ability to be able to voice your concerns. If your experience is not as written, please let DFA or the OTA know. It is only by you gaining your voice and wanting to be heard will the system keep improving.
DFA will continue to advocate for all Donor Families and the Donation Community on all relevant issues.
