Team GB cycling coach thanks LTHT transplant team

22 March 2017

British Cycling’s head sprint coach Justin Grace visited the Trust yesterday to meet his consultants Mr Steven Pollard and Dr Mark Aldersley and thank our transplant team following his successful liver transplant.

Justin is now back on his bike just four months after the transplant and made an emotional appeal for organ donors after speaking about his donor for the first time.
