Organ Donation Week 26 September – 2 October

Each year, hundreds of opportunities for transplants are missed because families aren't sure what to do.

Your family will always be consulted about whether you wanted to be an organ donor or not, and clinicians will never proceed with organ donation if your family or loved ones object.

It's really important that you talk to your loved ones and make sure they understand and support your organ donation decision. Whether you decide to donate or not, you can still help your family through a difficult time by talking to them now, and making sure they know what you want. You can also register your decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register.
