Become an organ donor and save a life

Transplants save lives and 92 per cent of us would take an organ if we needed one.

Yet only 27 per cent of us have taken action and joined the NHS Organ Donor Register.

A spokesperson said: “If you believe in organ donation, prove it.

“We give hope to more than 10,000 people of all ages across the UK who need an organ transplant.

“Yet many people - on average three a day - die before they can have a transplant because there are simply not enough organs available.

“If you would take an organ, would you be willing to give one and help someone live after your death?

“Please register now - transplants save lives.”
