NHS Organ Donor Register

Transplants are one of the most miraculous achievements of modern medicine. But they depend entirely on the generosity of donors and their families who are willing to make this life-saving or life-enhancing gift to others.

One donor can save the life of several people and improve the quality of life of many more. The more people who pledge to donate their organs and tissue after their death, the more people stand to benefit. By choosing to join the NHS Organ Donor Register you can help to achieve a better quality of life for others.

Organ transplants are the only hope for people with organ failure. More than 16 million people have joined the NHS Organ Donor Register yet there is a critical shortage of organs available for transplant. Every day three people die whose lives could have been saved by receiving a transplant.

Who can register?

The NHS Organ Donor Register records the details of those who want to donate and makes it possible for those who need an organ to receive one. Anyone can register. Organs from people in their 70s and 80s are transplanted successfully giving life to others.

Joining the register records your agreement to the use of your organs and tissue for transplantation after your death. When you register it is important that you tell those closest to you about your decision so they can confirm your wishes.
