Doctors will always prioritise saving your life - not someone else’s.

If you want to save lives, register to be a donor. It only takes two minutes, but it is important to tell your family you have done so. Don’t leave it too late to talk about organ donation. Many people don’t realise that their family’s support is needed for organ donation to go ahead.
