Announcing a new initiative which gives you and other readers the chance to make your thoughts known about organ donation.
ORGAN DONATION: PUBLIC AWARENESS IS KEY TO SUCCESS
Members of the public are invited to take part in a first online survey to test people's wishes in joining the NHS Organ Donor Register. Have your say via: UK Transplant Survey
This survey is at the request of the Special Health Authority NHS Blood and Transplant, NHSBT.
Friends of BODY.
You may be a organ and tissue donor in the future but you can help immediately by assisting BODY to enable people to make informed and voluntary choices regarding organ and tissue donation.
Please select Friends
You can now enter your name to join the NHS Organ Donor Register via the UK Transplant Homepage and select appropriate links.
It is very important to tell your family, close relatives and friends about your decision regarding organ and tissue donation. They will need to know to confirm your wishes. Likewise you will need to know their wishes in case you are asked about their wishes to be an organ/tissue donor.
