It’s National Transplant Week this week and the nation is being called upon to do a selfless good deed and help a stranger.
How many of us have considered organ donation? There are 10,000 people in need of a transplant and not enough organs to go around, on average three people die every day because there just aren’t enough organs available. Sign up today to help change that- add your name to the organ donor register and help save others.
It’s vital to discuss this important decision with family members as their consent is necessary in order for the donation to go ahead. Anyone can register as an organ donor, at any age.
You can choose to donate some or all of your organs. And you can change your mind at any time. It only takes a few minutes to register, simply visit: https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/register-to-donate/ or call 0300 123 23 23.
