Donation makes a difference


By donating your organs after you die, you will help save and transform the lives of desperately ill people.

Each donor is precious as fewer than 5,000 people each year in the UK die in circumstances where they can become a donor. So if you want to make a real difference join the NHS Organ Donor Register and talk about your donation decision with family and friends. Letting them know what you've decided now makes it much easier for them to support your decision to be a donor.

Thank you to the 20,515,981 people who have joined the NHS Organ Donor Register.
