Organ Donation

Organ Donation

Organ donation is when you allow your organs or tissues to be removed and given to someone else.

Most donated organs and tissues are from people who have died. Others get organs from living donors because of a shortage of organs.

The Organ Donation Process

There is a move to make it compulsory to opt out of organ donation, rather than following the current practice of having to opt in by carrying a donor card.

The move is because of the shortage of donors and because of the difficulty many health professionals experience in asking for permission when relatives may be in a state of extreme shock, perhaps after a traffic accident, or after turning off a life-support machine.

A.W. Lymn staff have years of experience dealing with organ donation procedure and can signpost you and support you and your family in this process.

To donate your organs and/or tissue after death:

  • Register as a donor on the NHS Organ Donor Register
