UPDATE – 31 March 2020
The current COVID-19 global pandemic is having an impact on every organisation around the world, including The University of Western Australia. To ensure the Body Donation Program's long-term integrity, we are informing all registered body donation donors that the Program is temporarily suspended. The WA Department of Health has been consulted and supports our decision, which is in line with a number of other body donation programs interstate. We regret that we are unable to accept deceased donors to our Program until further notice. We understand that for some people and their families, this is a disappointing decision; but under the circumstances, we must advise families to proceed with their own funeral arrangements. The decision has been made in the interests of maintaining the safety and protection of the wider community, and all involved. We will resume the Body Donation Program as soon as we are confident that it is safe to do so, and will advise you as soon as that decision is made.
If you have any questions, the Body Donor Coordinator is available on 6488 3288 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
