What can you donate?
Types of organ donation
Everyone has a choice as to whether or not they want to become an organ donor after they die, and if you choose to donate, you can choose to donate either some or all of your organs.
By registering to become an organ donor you have the option to donate organs such as your heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas and small bowel. All of these forms of donation can greatly enhance or even save the life of someone in need.

A small number of people across the UK have also donated limbs after their death to transform someone’s life. This type of transplant is very rare and requires the family to explicitly consent to this type of donation.
