Ian Mean, chair of Gloucestershire’s Organ Donation Committee, has been appointed regional chair of twelve hospital Trusts for organ donation.

Mr Mean, who has chaired the Gloucestershire Hospitals Trust committee for the last eight years, is now also responsible for the organ donation committees in the South Central division of NHS Blood and Transplant.

The committees cover hospitals from Gloucestershire to the Isle of Wight. Ian’s new role is voluntary.

He said: “I am honoured to take on this role. I think that organ donation is the greatest gift of life anyone can give.

“I am working with great teams of people who inspire our committees to promote the message of organ donation”.

Peter Lachecki, Chair of the Gloucestershire Hospitals Trust, said:

“The work of the team here at the hospitals in raising awareness among patients and staff has been simply incredible. This has saved lives and it’s so rewarding to see that Ian is taking some of the learning and sharing it with other similar hospitals. In return I’m sure we’ll learn from other hospitals in equal measure.”

Ian Mean is Gloucestershire director of Business West, a board member of GFirstLEP. 

He is a former editor of the Western Daily Press; editor in chief of Gloucestershire Media, former marketing manager the Daily Mirror and northern news editor of the Daily Mail. Currently he is also a contributing editor at Business & Innovation Magazine.
