Who can become an organ donor?
Anyone can register to donate their organs and tissue when they die, regardless of their age or medical conditions. To ensure that all donated organs are safe, the donor’s medical and lifestyle history is assessed at the time of donation.
Becoming an organ donor only takes a few minutes if you register online, but can bring a lifetime of health and happiness to those who are waiting for a transplant.
Your family will be asked to support organ donation if, when you die, you are in a position to donate your organs. So make sure you tell them you want to be an organ donor too.
Every day across the UK, someone dies waiting for an organ transplant.
