Organ Donation - How to Register

Could you consider giving permission to donate organs after your death?

organdonortshirt

It can feel like a big decision, but it's one that can mean everything to someone else, someone whose life you might save by this amazing act of generosity.
If organ donation is something you feel you could do, then we all need you. Any one of us could find ourselves in the terrible situation of needing a liver or a kidney, or of needing help to see or breathe, or live. It could be us, our friends, our partners or our children or grandchildren.
If you think you could EVEN POSSIBLY put yourself forward then please read on and remember - even if you say yes you can change your mind at any time - and even if you say yes, if it ever came to it your relatives would still be consulted about your wishes.


Think about it - one day someone else's life could be in your hands.

Do you have what it takes?

What is the NHS Organ Donor Register?

organlogoThe NHS Organ Donor Register is a national, confidential list of people who are willing to become donors after their death. It can be quickly accessed to see if an individual has registered a willingness to be an organ donor. It can literally be a life-saver.

It means that in the event of your death there's a chance that your organs could help someone else to live.

It is not known exactly how many people's organs could have been used to save life if only they and their families had given consent.

Putting your name on the NHS Organ Donor Register makes everyone aware of your wishes and makes it easier for them to agree to your donation.

Millions of people carry donor cards or are on the register. Join them. The easiest way is to click on the organ donor register logo above or click here.

When you register it is important that you tell those closest to you about your decision.

If your name is on the register, the person closest to you in life will be asked to confirm that you had not changed your mind. Putting your name on the register demonstrates your consent to the use of your organs for transplantation, but your relatives will still be involved in the decision.

Facing up to the death of a loved one is hard. Having to make a decision about organ donation, unsure whJoin the organ donor registerat that person would have wanted can cause extra pain.

Talk to your family now to make sure they know what you want. 

You will be sent a donor card when you join the Organ Donor Register, if you are already on the register but haven’t got a card you can request one by ringing the Organ Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23 between 7am and 11pm seven days a week. Calls are charged at your contracted rate for local calls.
