Matt Speight, who is responsible for Medical Records and Access to Records in Bedfordshire and Luton, was interviewed for Nick Coffer’s 12 O’clock Show on BBC Three Counties Radio.

He was asked to take part by Luton Blood Donor Centre having previously given a speech at a blood donor awards ceremony.

Last year, Matt suffered a burst gastric ulcer and lost six units of blood. He only survived because of the amazing medical care he received and the fact there was blood available for a transfusion.

The interview is available on the BBC iPlayer here. The interview starts 40minutes into the programme.

A copy of the speech Matt gave last year at the blood donor awards ceremony is also attached.
