SAV­ING A LIFE

How do I get on the NHS or­gan-donor reg­is­ter?

Reveal - - Style File - An­gela, Mor­peth

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
