SAVING A LIFE
How do I get on the NHS organ-donor register?
Just type it into Google, and it will take you there – 36 per cent of people are now on the register. This is progress, but there is clearly a long way to go. As well as putting yourself on the register, it’s important to tell your friends and family that you’ve done it, so they know what your wishes are. More than 50,000 people in the UK are alive today because of organ transplantation. Passing your organs on when you die is a great way of giving back to others. organdonation.nhs.uk
