National Transplant Week 2014

National Transplant Week 2014

This year's National Transplant Week will take place from 7 - 13 July.

We'll be updating www.transplantweek.co.uk with news and information about the Week as plans develop so make sure you keep an eye on it. All the downloadable materials you'll need to help raise awareness of organ donation will soon be available there too.

You can still watch the remarkable films made for last year's campaign by Homeland's David Harewood, Richard Branson, Sky News presenter Kay Burley and Emmerdale's Wil Johnson here and be inspired by their intimate and relaxed approach to having that all-imporant organ donation conversation. From the site you can also watch the winning and shortlisted films in last year's 'Organ Donation Through a Lens' competition.

And don't forget you can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter

Facts about Organ Donation

  • 10,000 currently need a transplant in the UK, and three die everyday because not enough organs are available.
  • Whilst 96% of us would take an organ if we needed one, only 28% of us are on the register.
  • Simply carrying a donor card does not mean you are on the register, you need to sign up to join the database from this website.
  • Anyone can register on the NHS Organ Donor Register. Age isn't a barrier to being an organ and/or tissue donor, and nor are most medical conditions.
