You've updated your details. Now tell your family

Registering your decision is a great start, but your family will still be involved when the time comes, so it’s important you make sure they know what you want.

What happens now?

  • We will add your details and decision to the NHS Organ Donor Register
  • You should now talk to your family, and make sure they know what you want

Tips to help you start the conversation with family and friends

Step 1

Find the right time to talk. Perhaps in the car or while sharing the washing up.  

Step 2

Explain that you have registered your decision to become an organ donor.

Step 3

Tell them how you arrived at your decision, and how donating your organs and tissues could improve or even save lives.
