Become an Organ Donor

The National Health Service is constantly asking for people to sign up to their organ donor register. At any one time, more than 9000 people in the UK need a transplant.

One donor can give life to several people and restore the sight of two more. To decide whether or not you want to give life to someone else after you have died is something very personal and you need to make your own decision. Please also let your family and friends know your wishes.

Sign Up To The Organ Donor Register Here!

By joining the register you are giving your agreement to your organs and tissues being used for transplantation to save or enhance the lives of others after your death.
