Organ Donation

I have just added myself to the organ donation list on the NHS.


I think a lot of people wouldn't mind if their organs were used when they die, but just never get around to actually adding themselves to the list, but it is really easy and quick to do and you can take yourself off at any time.

And to think that 1000 people every year die because they can't get a organ.

Heres what the NHS has to say:

'Would you take an organ if you needed one? Nearly everyone would. But only 29% of us have joined the Organ Donor Register.

More than 10,000 people in the UK currently need a transplant. Of these, 1000 each year – that's three a day - will die waiting as there are not enough organs available.

Please help us to turn people’s good intentions about organ donation into action by registering on the NHS Organ Donor Register.'
